To understand how much Indian politics has evolved, compare three versions of National Democratic Alliance (NDA) — the NDA of 1998, when it was originally conceived with Atal Bihari Vajpayee as the face; the NDA of 2014, when Narendra Modi became the mascot of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP); and the NDA of 2019, after its Lok Sabha election victory. The BJP has, of course, remained the anchor of the alliance throughout. But in the 1990s, it was a senior partner, which needed allies to be able to form the government. Power was relatively equally distributed in the coalition. In 2014, when few thought that Mr Modi would actually get a majority, the BJP considered the NDA an important instrument to expand its base and serve as an insurance policy if its own seats fell short. Today, after Mr Modi has won a second term, the government is officially that of the NDA, but there is no doubt that it is a truly BJP government, with the party committed to pursuing its ideological agenda.
