The National Democratic Alliance (NDA) is a centre-right political alliance led by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).[1] As of 2015, it is the ruling coalition in the Parliament of India under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi,[2][3] and rules over 13 state governments.[4] The NDA was formed by the BJP in the 1998 general elections; it consisted of its existing allies like the Samata Party, the Shiromani Akali Dal, the Shiv Sena in addition to the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam and the Biju Janata Dal. Among these regional parties, the Shiv Sena was the only one which had an ideology similar to that of the BJP.[5][6] The coalition first came to power at the Central Government after the 1998 general elections, and continued to rule till 2004.[7]

As of September 2015, the NDA has thirty-seven member parties (two of them are political fronts and one is an organisation), out of which the BJP is the only national party. Thirteen NDA members (Shiv Sena, All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, Shiromani Akali Dal, All India N.R. Congress, Naga People's Front, Lok Janshakti Party, Rashtriya Lok Samta Party, Desiya Murpokku Dravida Kazhagam, Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party, All Jharkhand Students Union, National People's Party, Mizo National Front and Pattali Makkal Katchi) have been granted "State Party" status by the Election Commission of India.[8] As of September 2015, the NDA has 337 and 64 members in the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha respectively.[9][10] With 272 seats in the Lok Sabha and 48 seats in the Rajya Sabha, the BJP is the largest NDA party in the parliament.[9][10]. On 16 March 2018, Telugu Desam Party quit NDA
