PM Modi to Take Oath on Sunday Evening

On Sunday night, Narendra Modi will now take the oath of office as prime minister for the third time in a row. The oath-taking was scheduled for this Saturday, according to earlier reports from sources.

As the leader of the NDA, Mr. Modi was selected on Wednesday, paving the way for him to become the second Indian prime minister after Jawaharlal Nehru and take the oath of office for the third time in a row.

The oath-taking event has invited a number of South Asian leaders, and the presidents of Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, Sheikh Hasina and Ranil Wickremesinghe, have already indicated that they will be attending. Additionally, invitations have been made to Prime Ministers Pravind Jugnauth of Mauritius, Tshering Tobgay of Bhutan, and Pushpa Kamal Dahal, commonly known as “Prachanda,” of Nepal.

In the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, results for which were declared on Tuesday, the BJP was reduced to 240 seats from its overwhelming majority of 303 in 2019. The NDA, which had won 352 constituencies last time, has also come down to 293, but is above the majority mark of 272.

This means that PM Modi and the BJP are relying on their allies to be able to form the government – a situation neither has faced since 2014. The two biggest partners are Chandrababu Naidu’s Telugu Desam Party, which has got 16 seats, and Nitish Kumar’s Janata Dal United, which has garnered 12.
