While most are still trying to analyze why the Narendra Modi-led outfit did not achieve the majority mark of 272 seats in the Lok Sabha, some feel the 2024 general election results, where NDA managed to cross the majority mark but fell way short of its expected 400 seats, is a time for self-introspection and re-strategizing.

Barai is a long-time associate of Modi, who has been instrumental in organizing the Indian American community and multiple diaspora events in the United States each time Modi visits the US.
