The whole world is watching to see whether the Modi government will be able to function without any pressure or it will have to face obstacles from the alliance partners.

In the Lok Sabha elections 2024, after 10 years, it happened that the public did not give majority to any party. BJP, which claimed to cross 400, won the maximum number of 240 seats but could not touch the majority figure (272). Being the largest democracy in the world, the eyes of the world were on India's elections.

The results that came contrary to expectations have further increased the world's interest in Indian politics. Every day something or the other is being published in the world media on how the government will be formed and how long it will last.

On Sunday, the NDA government will be formed at the centre for the third time in a row. Modi will take oath as the Prime Minister. Read how the world's big media houses are analysing the political circus going on in India.

'Modi's tone softened'

American media house New York Times writes, the political atmosphere of Delhi has changed. Narendra Modi, who has become humble, is going to take oath as the Prime Minister of India for the third time. Modi, who always speaks like a messiah, has softened his tone.

The effect of the results is that now the anchors have started giving time to the opposition to speak in the debates on television. NYT writes- After Modi lost the majority, now other parties are also enjoying the limelight which earlier used to be available only to the Prime Minister.

NYT has compared Modi's entry on the day of inauguration of the new Parliament (28 May 2023) and his entry on the day he was elected as the leader of the NDA parliamentary party (7 June 2024). It is written- On the day of inauguration of Parliament, Modi entered like a king. Modi, with a tilak on his forehead, was walking in the front carrying a scepter 'Sengol' in his hand. Pandits were behind him chanting mantras.

A year later, on 7 June, when Modi reached the old building of Parliament after losing the majority, he first bowed to the Constitution. When he was elected as the leader of the parliamentary party, whenever a senior leader was standing up to give a speech, Modi also stood up in respect.

The New York Times has written that the two strong alliance partners in the NDA government are TDP and JDU. BJP will have to depend heavily on these two allies. The newspaper writes that both these alliance parties do not agree on the most important Hindu agenda for BJP. Both these parties have often expressed different opinions from BJP on issues like UCC, CAA-NRC, Muslim reservation etc.

Foreign media believes that JDU and TDP will not agree on the agenda of the BJP government on many issues.

I remembered Atal
Britain's media house BBC asks whether the imposing Modi will be able to transform into a humble leader. BBC writes that coalition governments are nothing new in Indian politics. Here 6 to a dozen parties have formed governments together. In the general elections held in India from 1989 to 2004, no party got majority. From 1989 to 1999, governments were formed and fell 8 times.

BBC writes that despite the lack of stability in coalition governments, there were some big and important changes in the country's economy and growth rate. Raising questions on India's political situation, BBC writes that will Modi, who has always run a government with a majority, be able to give up his domineering attitude and support Nitish and Naidu?

Many people hope that the coalition government led by Modi will strengthen India's democracy. This will end Modi's dominance in taking decisions for the country. Bureaucracy, judiciary and media will become stronger.

BBC has remembered the government led by Atal Bihari. It has written- His government from 1998 to 2004 is an example for Modi. During this period, foreign investment increased in India, many expressways were built, trade policies were eased and the IT revolution started in India. He also tried to improve relations with Pakistan. This happened because Atal worked with the consent of his colleagues.

BBC has given special space to Chandrababu Naidu's demands. British media has written that in 2018, TDP left the NDA alliance due to non-fulfillment of its demands. It has become a part of the alliance just before the general elections.

At present, in order to support BJP, Chandrababu Naidu's party has demanded the post of Lok Sabha Speaker. Along with this, it has staked claim on important ministries in the government and has also raised the demand for special status to Andhra Pradesh.

Nitish will definitely get his rights
Milan Vaishnav writes in The Washington Post that the BJP government is now badly dependent on the 'goodness' of its two allies. We can expect from these two allies that along with forming the government, they will also take their full share in implementing the policies.

The world media has written that this time there will remain scope for hatred between BJP and its two important allies.

Nitish who sometimes breaks up and sometimes patch ups
Al Jazeera writes that CM Nitish Kumar has played a big role in giving BJP a big victory in Bihar. PM Modi also gave credit to Nitish Kumar while speaking to party supporters on Tuesday evening. But still, there has been a love-hate relationship between the two leaders for a long time, in which there is often scope for breakup and patchup.

Like Nitish Kumar, Chandrababu Naidu has also formed an alliance with both BJP and Congress. Both leaders want the support of Muslim voters and do not trust the Hindutva politics of BJP.
