Let me tell you that this alliance has helped the Congress to form government twice. Currently, the president of UPA is Rahul Gandhi.
The names of party members included in the UPA are given below. Indian National Congress Nationalist Congress Party Rashtriya Janata Dal Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam Indian Union Muslim League Jharkhand Mukti Morcha Janata Dal (Secular) Kerala Congress (M) National Lok Dal Revolutionary Socialist Party Communist Marxist Party (John) Kerala Congress (Jacob) Peace Party of India Great parties, now you know what the NDA and UPA are.

The main party of the NDA is the Bharatiya Janata Party, while the main party of the UPA is the Congress and both parties lead their respective alliances.
