There were 543 seats up for grabs in the Lok Sabha, where the people of India directly chose
their leaders. The ruling Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) won the most seats, getting 240 in total.
But they didn’t have an easy time winning. The Indian National Congress (INC), which has
been around for a long time, also did well. They won 99 seats and became the main opposition
party again. This was a big deal for them and showed that they still have a strong presence in
Indian politics.

won 9 seats.

In South the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) in Andhra Pradesh got 16 seats, the Dravida Munnetra

Even smaller parties like the Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) and Left parties like CPI(M), CPI, and
CPI(ML) Liberation got 5,4,2,2 seats respectively, adding to the diversity of voices in the Lok

When all the votes were counted, the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) got the most seats
overall, with 293 in total, INDIA is at 232 seats and Others in 18 seats. But in Indian politics,
things can change quickly, so nothing is set in stone.
