What is going on with the seat-sharing talks between the BJP and the NDA for the Lok Sabha Election 2024?

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which is currently in power, together with other members of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) are currently having discussions in order to finalize the seat-sharing formula for the forthcoming Lok Sabha Election 2024. This includes not only the opposition’s INDIA bloc but also the ruling party. During the course of the last few months, a number of reports concerning the ongoing negotiations that are taking place within the NDA alliance have surfaced. This is what they have to say:


Karnataka, the state that has 28 representatives in the Lok Sabha, is the location where the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is currently in negotiations with its new coalition partner, the Janata Dal (Secular). According to reports reported by The Indian Express, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) made an offer of three seats to the JD(S) during the initial round of negotiations that took place at the residence of the Union Home Minister Amit Shah.

“The BJP also offered the choice of a third seat from among Kolar, Bengaluru Rural, and Tumkur,” JD(S) officials were reported as saying. The report stated that the BJP offered the Hassan and Mandya seats to the party in which HD Kumarawamy was a member. It should be noted that the Vokkaliga belt in Southern Karnataka is home to all of the seats that are being offered to the JD(S).

However, the JD(S) intends to run candidates in five different Lok Sabha constituencies in the upcoming elections. It is said that the party has made a demand for one seat in the north Karnataka region.

After the recent meeting, HD Kumaraswamy, the chief of the Karnataka JD(S) and a former chief minister, stated that Amit Shah had informed him that he would discuss the process of the JD(S) officially joining the NDA and seat allocation after the completion of the consecration of the Rama temple in Ayodhya in the presence of Nadda.

The Hindustan Times claimed earlier in September 2023 that the BJP had “agreed to let it (JDS) contest on four seats — Kolar, Hassan, Mandya, and Bengaluru rural.” This was despite the fact that the JD(S) planned to run for office from Mandya, Hassan, Tumakuru, Chickballapur, and Bengaluru Rural.

After Kumaraswamy, a former Chief Minister, met with Home Minister Amit Shah and BJP national president J. P. Nadda in New Delhi in September, the JD(S) decided to associate itself with the National Democratic Alliance (NDA), which is run by the BJP.

During the 2019 Lok Sabha elections in Karnataka, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was able to win 25 seats, while an independent candidate from Mandya named Sumalatha Ambareesh, who was supported by the BJP, received one seat. A single seat was won by both the Congress and the JD(S). During the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the JD(S) partnered with the Congress to run for representatives.


According to statements made by Bhabesh Kalita, the head of the Assam BJP, on January 10, the NDA partners, which include the BJP, the AGP, and the UPPL, will meet in February to discuss the seats. He was quoted by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) as adding, “It will be finalized in that joint meeting only.”

There are a total of fourteen seats in the Lok Sabha, nine of which are currently held by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), three by the Congress, and one by the All India Union of Democratic Families (AIUDF) and one by an Independent. During the Lok Sabha elections, the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) is aiming to win at least 12 seats out of a total of 14, according to Kalita.


According to a report that was published by the Times of India earlier in January, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) intends to retain at least thirty of the total forty Lok Sabha seats for itself and to offer the remaining seats to its allies in the National Democratic Alliance (NDA). In the state of Bihar, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) joined forces with the Lok Janshakti Party (LJP), the Rashtriya Lok Janata Dal (RLJD) led by Upendra Kushwaha, and the Hindustani Awam Morcha-Secular (HAM-S) party.

It was stated by the Hindustan Times that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) might be fielding candidates from the 17 seats it won in 2019. It is also possible that it will run for thirteen out of sixteen seats that were previously held by its former ally, the Janata Dal (United).
Nawada, Valmiki Nagar, Siwan, and Karakat Lok Sabha seats were among the four Lok Sabha seats that Om Prakash Rajbhar, the head of the Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party (SBSP), sought to be allocated from the state of Bihar, according to Rajbhar’s son, who spoke to the Press Trust of India.

Uttar Pradesh

According to reports, Om Prakash Rajbhar, the president of the SBSP, urged that Uttar Pradesh be given five seats in the Lok Sabha. As stated earlier, Arun Rajbhar, the son of Rajbhar and the chief spokesperson for the SBSP, stated that during his meetings with Amit Shah and JP Nadda, his father requested that his party be granted the Lok Sabha seats in the districts of Ghazipur, Ballia, Mau, Salempur, and Chandauli in the state of Uttar Pradesh.

Through a coalition with the Samajwadi Party (SP), the Samajwadi Party of Uttar Pradesh (SBSP) was able to secure six seats in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly election of 2022. As a result of the party’s decision to join the NDA, it severed its links with the SP.
