Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ruling BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) will fall short of a majority in parliament after the April-May general election, according to a Mood of the Nation survey. The India Today Group-Karvy Insights Mood of the Nation survey finds the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party-led alliance is forecast to win 237 of the 543 seats in the Lok Sabha (lower house of parliament). Just a year-and-a-half ago, Modi’s re-election as prime minister was considered a given, but now he is facing public discontent over unemployment and a weak farm economy.
