2024 Lok Sabha Election: Latest Developments

- Congress Demands Ballot Papers to be used in Lok Sabha Election
- Congress MP Manish Tewari has called for voting in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections to be held on paper ballots, arguing that democracy is too precious to be left to technology. He has also expressed concern about the possibility of electronic voting machines (EVMs) being manipulated.
- BJP-JDS To Form Alliance:
- The former Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa confirmed that the BJP and JD(S) have formalized their alliance for the upcoming 2024 Lok Sabha election in Karnataka. Yediyurappa stated that the agreement includes four seats, with Amit Shah consenting to allocate four Lok Sabha seats to JD(S).
- It’s worth noting that JD(S) had previously formed a coalition government with the Congress, led by HD Kumaraswamy as Chief Minister. However, the government lost a vote of confidence in 2019, just a year after coming to power.
- Reports suggest that JD(S) aimed to contest in Mandya, Hassan, Tumakuru, Chickballapur, and Bengaluru Rural. The BJP agreed to allow JD(S) to contest in four of these seats: Kolar, Hassan, Mandya, and Bengaluru Rural.
- Recent Bypoll Result: INDIA 4, BJP 3

In West Bengal, the ruling Trinamool Congress managed to secure the Dhupguri Assembly seat, taking it from the BJP. Jharkhand Mukti Morcha’s (JMM) Bebi Devi, an ally of the INDIA alliance, won the Dumri assembly seat in Jharkhand by a substantial margin of over 17,000 votes, defeating the NDA candidate Yashoda Devi. Meanwhile, the Congress party achieved a significant victory in Kerala’s Puthuppally assembly constituency.
- In a notable development benefiting the INDIA alliance, the Samajwadi Party (SP) defeated the BJP in the Ghosi bypoll in Uttar Pradesh with a substantial margin of 42,759 votes.

What intellectuals say?
Indian-American economist Arvind Panagariya and Jagdish Bhagwati, a professor of Indian political economy at Columbia University, have forecasted that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to secure a third consecutive term in the 2024 elections. They base their prediction on a range of welfare initiatives implemented by his administration. These initiatives, which include initiatives like providing toilets for women, establishing bank accounts, and ensuring water connections for marginalized sections, have been carried out by the Modi Government since 2014.
Panagariya has also foreseen that India will ascend from its current 5th position to secure the rank of the world’s 3rd largest economy in the coming decade. He asserts that he was among the initial prognosticators of the triumph of the Modi government in the 2019 general election. As a distinguished political economist on the global stage, Panagariya has now projected a recurrence of the Modi government’s 2019 achievement in the upcoming 2024 Lok Sabha Elections.
NDA vs INDIA: Who is ahead at the moment?
As the opposition parties came under one roof in Bengaluru to name their alliance as the Indian National Development Inclusive Alliance (INDIA), the decision certainly put the NDA slightly on the back foot. But a name itself is surely not enough to convince the voters. A catchy name might give the perception that the opposition alliance can pose a serious threat to the NDA-led government. However, a careful analysis reveals that the NDA might still have a significant edge in the electoral strength.
The INDIA and NDA alliances say they include 28 and 38 political parties, but there’s still a disagreement about how many parties are actually with them.
Political Dynamics: Looking at the recent state assembly elections, a study by the CSDS Data Unit indicates that the INDIA alliance seems more powerful than the NDA for state-level elections. However, this alliance might not pose a strong challenge to the BJP in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, considering the results of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
Regional vs National: As per a recent analysis by the CSDS Data Unit, the vote share of the coalition parties the INDIA during the last assembly elections in the states was 39.7% while the NDA got 34.7% votes. The data clearly hints that the INDIA alliance might have an upper hand in state assemblies.
However, the dynamics completely change when it comes to the Lok Sabha elections. According to the analysis based on the 2019 verdict, the INDIA alliance commands 171 Lok Sabha seats, while the NDA looks safe at 303. This data has been estimated considering a hypothetical situation if the current INDIA partners had joined hands back in 2019 to challenge the NDA.

Who is the Next PM of India in 2024: Major Findings
- PM Modi enjoys an approval rating of 76% according to the latest Morning Consult survey. Typically an approval rating of 50-55% is enough for re-election
- 2024 Lok Sabha Opinion Poll: Performance of Prime Minister Modi [2019-22]
- 53% of respondents prefer Narendra Modi as the Prime Minister in 2024
- 66% of voters think the PM is doing a Good/ Outstanding Job overall
- 48% of the voters think the Government is doing a Good/ Outstanding job on the economy
- None of the opposition candidates cross 10% in preference for PM
- NDA’s Strong Voting Blocks (2019)
- Upper Caste
- These two voting blocks make up about 55% of India’s population. NDA wins nearly 75% of its votes from the two voting blocks
- India 2024 Opinion Poll: The factors favoring Narendra Modi’s re-election in 2024 are:
- TINA (There Is No Alternative) – The TINA factor has been one of the major factors that helped Narendra Modi cruise through the 2019 Lok Sabha election. The same seems to be turning out to be a major factor that may help Narendra Modi win the consecutive 3rd. As of now, the public is yet to be convinced by any of the opposition faces who could be an alternative to Narendra Modi in 2024.
- Divided Opposition – After the 2014 Lok Sabha election, there have been talks about opposition unity. But the opposition unity has been more hype than reality. In 2019, a Mahagathbandan was formed to take on Narendra Modi and his party BJP. But by the time the Lok Sabha election in 2019 came, the Mahagathbandan looked more like an alliance between a few parties than the mega opposition coalition. The same turned out to be true even for the 2024 Lok Sabha. The opposition has more faces who are eyeing the Prime Minister’s chair and none want to compromise despite all having the same common enemy, Narendra Modi.
- Funding – The other main factor that the opposition in India lacks is funding. BJP is not short of funds and with power in major states of India, they can contest any election with a huge might. The opposition on the other hand does not have enough funds to take on the mighty BJP. Though they may show the intent of defeating Narendra Modi and the BJP, the funding issue will keep their campaigning to limited reach and BJP will be able to spread their message to the majority and the message will be loud and clear.
- Performance on key development initiatives: Apart from the previously implemented, Swacch Bharat Yojana, LPG schemes, PM Kisan Samman Yojana, and PM Awas Yojana has also caught pace.
Latest CSDS Survey Result
The latest survey conducted by CSDS after the completion of 9 years of the Modi Government, put Narendra Modi ahead of Rahul Gandhi by 16 points. The survey was conducted across 19 states between May 10 and 19, just after the Karnataka election result.
The findings of the survey are as follows:
- 43 percent of respondents said they wanted to see Modi as their PM which is 1 percent less compared to the 2019 elections.
- Ratings of Rahul Gandhi have improved from 23 percent to 27 percent.
- 63 percent of people believe that the country’s global stature grew under PM Modi while 23% did not agree.
- 47 percent of the respondents rated the Modi government’s development work “high”.
- Unemployment, poverty, and price rise are set to be the main election issues as per the majority of the respondents.
- 47% have given a high rating to the government’s development work
- 57% of the respondents said populist policies are essential for the poor.
Rahul Gandhi has been able to improve his acceptance as compared to 2019. Modi remains to be a better choice as Prime Minister of the country.
How Will Karnataka Assembly Election Affect 2024 Lok Sabha Elections in India?
Karnataka, with its significant number of seats in the Lok Sabha, has emerged as a crucial determinant of power for the ruling National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government. In the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) demonstrated its prowess by securing an impressive victory, winning 17 out of the 28 seats in Karnataka. The party further solidified its dominance in 2019 by triumphing in 25 seats, clearly establishing Karnataka as a stronghold for the BJP.
However, the recent 2023 Assembly Election in Karnataka has marked a significant turning point. The electoral landscape witnessed a potential resurgence of the Congress party, indicating a possible shift in power dynamics. The Congress party’s performance in the assembly elections signals a renewed strength and raises the prospect of their comeback in Karnataka.
This potential return of the Congress in Karnataka carries profound implications for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections in 2024. Firstly, it challenges the BJP’s stronghold in the state and presents a formidable opposition force that could potentially chip away at the BJP’s seat tally. The Congress, buoyed by its performance in the assembly elections, may mobilize its resources and strategize to regain lost ground, targeting key constituencies that were previously under BJP control.
Secondly, the outcome in Karnataka could have ripple effects on the overall political landscape of India. A resurgence of the Congress in Karnataka would inject fresh energy into the party, instilling confidence among its members and supporters nationwide. This renewed vigor could potentially translate into improved performance in other states, thereby altering the overall equation in the Lok Sabha.
Furthermore, the outcome of the 2023 Assembly Election in Karnataka could influence the perception and mood of the electorate leading up to the Lok Sabha elections. If the Congress manages to secure a substantial victory, it could boost the morale of its supporters and potentially attract swing voters, creating a wave of momentum that could favor the party in the national elections.
Electorate rejection in Karnataka: The BJP’s defeat in Karnataka, the only southern state where it has been in power, is a significant setback for the party. It indicates that the BJP’s traditional strategies may not be as effective in the southern region. However, the party has shown resilience and determination to stick to its political-governance agenda, suggesting that it will not be easily deterred by electoral setbacks.
Concerns about the road ahead: The BJP’s lack of organization in the poll-bound states of Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, and Rajasthan is a cause for concern. These states are crucial for the party’s electoral strategy, and internal disarray could hinder its chances of retaining power. The BJP will need to address its internal issues and strengthen its organizational structure to increase its prospects in these states.
Recent government decisions: The promulgation of an Ordinance to nullify the Supreme Court’s ruling on the “services” issue, the withdrawal of Rs 2,000 notes, and the removal of Kiren Rijiju from the Law Ministry have surprised both critics and party insiders. These decisions demonstrate the BJP’s determination to pursue its agenda, even if it means overriding legal judgments or making unexpected moves. The party’s message is clear: it will do what it believes is necessary to further its goals, regardless of criticism or opposition.

The BJP has traditionally struggled to gain a significant foothold in the state’s political landscape.

In Maharashtra, the Congress has historically performed relatively well, giving Rahul Gandhi a stronger base of support.
- Karnataka – Rahul Gandhi’s weak performance: In recently ruled Karnataka, Rahul Gandhi’s performance is not particularly strong. The state has seen a political seesaw between the BJP and the Congress, and Rahul Gandhi’s influence has been somewhat limited, indicating that he struggles to make significant headway in the state.
- BJP-ruled states – Yogi Adityanath’s strength: Yogi Adityanath, the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, enjoys considerable popularity and strength within the BJP-ruled states. He has established a strong image and has been successful in consolidating the BJP’s position in the state.
- Weakest CM in BJP-ruled states: Among the BJP-ruled states, Bhupendra Patel is considered the weakest Chief Minister. However, this is expected as he is relatively new to the position. Eknath Shinde is also perceived as one of the weaker BJP Chief Ministers.
2024 Lok Sabha Election Prediction: Has Any Leader Won Record 3rd Term?
