Prime Minister Narendra Modi Tenders His Resignation

On Wednesday, June 5, 2024, in New Delhi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi formally resigned to President Droupadi Murmu. As part of getting ready for Modi’s expected third straight term as Prime Minister, the current government is replacing some members.

Cabinet Recommends Dissolution of 17th Lok Sabha

Modi’s Union Cabinet early in the day suggested that the 17th Lok Sabha should be dissolved. These Lok Sabha members will be leaving office on June 16. The Cabinet’s recommendation was the last step before the 18th Lok Sabha was formed after the recent elections.

President Requests Modi to Continue

After receiving Modi’s resignation, President Murmu asked him and his Council of Ministers to keep working until a new government is formed. This interim period ensures that there is no lack of administration, along with getting ready for the swearing-in ceremony of the new government.

Election Results and New Government Formation

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which leads the National Democratic Alliance (NDA), won the most seats in the recent Lok Sabha elections. The NDA needed more than 272 seats to form the government, but they won 293 seats in the 543-member House. The largest party in the NDA, the BJP, won 240 seats, but not enough to get a simple majority for the first time in ten years.

Support from Allies

The BJP will depend on its allies, especially Nitish Kumar’s Janata Dal-United (JD-U) and Chandrababu Naidu’s Telugu Desam Party (TDP), to stabilise the new government. The JD-U has 12 MPs, and the TDP has 16. Together, they give the NDA a bigger majority.

Modi’s Historical Third Term

On June 8, Narendra Modi will take the oath of office for a third term as Prime Minister. In fact, he is the first leader since Jawaharlal Nehru to reach this point. The Union Cabinet will also be present at the swearing-in ceremony. This will mark the start of Modi’s third term and the continuation of the NDA’s rule.

The Role of Opposition

Meanwhile, the Congress-led INDIA bloc, which is the opposition coalition, is planning what to do next. After losing 52 seats in the last election, the Congress has grown a lot. It won 99 seats in the most recent election, a big jump. This comeback shows that the opposition will have a bigger voice in the new Lok Sabha.

Final Cabinet Meeting of Modi 2.0

With Modi’s term ending on Wednesday morning, the Union Cabinet met at the Prime Minister’s home for the last time. At this meeting, discussions took place about plans for forming the next government. The Cabinet’s recommendation to dissolve the House is an important step toward starting the new legislative session.

Continuity and Stability

The President asked Modi and his ministers to stay in their jobs until a new government is formed. This ensures that there is no break in government, which is normal in parliamentary systems and helps the change of power go smoothly.


As India prepares for Narendra Modi’s third term as Prime Minister, things will stay the same and change. Key allies will have to back the BJP-led NDA government very strongly. Conversely, the opposition will play a big role in the next parliamentary sessions thanks to its better performance. Modi’s swearing-in on June 8 will start a new era in India’s political history. It will bring stability and a continuation of his leadership.
