Capping a landslide victory in the Lok Sabha elections, Narendra Modi, along with his Councils of Minister, on Thursday took oath as the 15th Prime Minister of India in the forecourt of the Rashtrapati Bhavan. The 68-year-old stalwart took oath as the Prime Minister for the second consecutive term. Top leaders and guests were invited from around the world and across the nation to attend Modi’s swearing-in ceremony.
Narendra Modi was sworn in as prime minister for a second term on Thursday at the head of a 25-member cabinet in which he enlisted Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president and close confidant Amit Shah, dropped several key members of the outgoing government and attempted to accommodate most partners in the ruling coalition, but failed to convince key ally Nitish Kumar to join his new ministerial council. The new cabinet is expected to hold its first meeting in the evening today and the allocation of portfolios will also be done soon.
