What happened in 2004? • BJP ditched DMK in Tamil Nadu and switched to AIADMK – Assuming the usual Tamil inversion would help • Simultaneous assembly and parliamentary elections in Andhra Pradesh – TDP faced a two-term anti-incumbency • Congress tied up with RJD and LJP in Bihar. Addition of LJP helped coalition sweep

What happened in 2004? (2/2) • Congress tied up with JMM in new Jharkhand • Congress-NCP alliance for the first time in Maharashtra • Breakdown of BJP in Uttar Pradesh – exit of Kalyan Singh, etc. – Strengthening of BSP in Uttar Pradesh • Breakdown of NDA in West Bengal

Why did NDA lose 2004? • Congress, which was averse to alliances in 1999, formed some for 2004 • Consolidation of pro-Congress votes in 2004 hurt BJP badly • The effect of “India Shining” was marginal
