New Delhi: The UPA still has no majority in the Rajya Sabha despite the fact that it won most of the 55 seats in the just-concluded biennial elections to the House.
With numbers not much on its side, the ruling alliance may have to sing the mantra of consensus on several key issues and legislations including its pet reforms programmes, a quick look at the Rajya Sabha results show.
In the 245-member House, the numbers are more or less the same for the ruling alliance and in fact the Congress tally has come down to 69 from 71 it held before the polls.
A redeeming feature for the UPA was that the DMK, its strong Southern ally, has netted three more seats increasing its personal tally to seven.
Sharad Pawar-led NCP continues to have six members and the Trinamool Congress and the National Conference two each.
