NERPF to pledge its support to the NDA: Rajnath
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Rajnath Singh on Thursday said the North-East Regional Political Front, which is a grouping of 11 regional political parties, has decided to pledge its support to the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) top help in 'forming a stable government at the Centre'.
"The North-East Regional Political Front (NERPF) has decided to pledge its support to the NDA in forming a stable government at the Centre," Singh tweeted.
"Nagaland CM Shri Neiphiu Rio has conveyed this message through a letter to me. I am thankful to him for the NERPF support to the NDA," he said.
If the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) wins a clear majority, a new government led by Narendra Modi could be a reality by May 20, according to reports, even as top BJP leaders met the Gujarat Chief Minister in Gandhinagar on Wednesday to discuss their post result strategy.
Media reports said Modi could take office sooner if NDA gains clear majority.
A staggered nine-phase Lok Sabha poll ended on May 12 in India with projections in all exit polls that BJP-led NDA will come to power.
Several of the exit polls said NDA will bag at least 272 seats while some put the figure at around 282 in the 543 member Parliament.
The counting of votes cast in the Lok Sabha polls will take place on Friday.
