A communique issued by the Rashtrapati Bhavan said the President dissolved the Lok Sabha after a cabinet meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi made such a recommendation Friday.
In 2014, Mr Modi had turned emotional in the Central Hall while addressing the MPs.
He also called for the NDA to work with cohesion for the country's development and said his "naara" (slogan) for the alliance is "national ambition and regional aspirations".
This time too after his formal election as Parliamentary party leader, Mr Modi is expected to deliver a brief speech. He said, Energy and synergy are the two main features of the NDA and the parties must walk shoulder-to-shoulder. "We are blamed for things which we are not responsible for", PM Modi said. Mr Modi said, the way the poor have been cheated, the minorities have been deceived the same way. A similar movement should be started for good governance now, he said.
