Correct Answer: D
Solution :[d] A political party becomes eligible to be recognised as a national party if it fulfils any of the three following conditions: 1. The party has won 2 percent of seats in the Lok Sabha (11 seats) from at least three different states in the latest general election. 2. In an election to the Lok Sabha or Legislative Assembly, the party has polled 6 percent of the total valid votes in at least four states, in addition to winning four Lok Sabha seats. 3. A party has got recognition as a state party in at least four states. Once a political party is recognised as a national party, the question of whether it continues to be recognised as such after subsequent Lok Sabha polls depends on whether it fulfils any of the three conditions.
