PM Narendra Modi Sworn in for Third Term as Prime Minister of INDIA

Today is marked ad the historic inauguration of Narendra Modi for his third consecutive term as Prime Minister, leading a coalition government following two consecutive single-party majority victories for the BJP. At 73, Modi joins the ranks of Jawaharlal Nehru, having secured victory in the 1952, 1957, and 1962 general elections.

The swearing-in ceremony also saw the induction of key figures like Rajnath Singh, Amit Shah, and Nitin Gadkari, alongside various other Cabinet Ministers. Notably, Modi’s gesture of inclusivity extended to coalition partners, with several MPs from NDA allies being sworn in. This inclusive approach was evident in Andhra Pradesh, where two MPs each from the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and the BJP, within the NDA, took their oaths.

 

Among those taking the oath were prominent leaders such as Ram Mohan Naidu from the TDP, Pemasani Chandrashekhar, H.D. Kumaraswamy from JD(S), and Sarbananda Sonowal from the BJP. Additionally, some old ministers like , Union Ministers Nitin Gadkari and Nirmala Sitharaman reaffirmed their commitment to national service through the oath-taking ceremony.

While the BJP secured 240 seats in this election, and the NDA secured a total of 286 seats, falling short of the 272-majority mark, it remains a significant force in Indian politics. This result contrasts with the resounding victories of 2019 and 2014, where the BJP secured 303 and 282 seats, respectively, to form majority governments.

The oat taking ceremony was not only a national affair but also drew attention globally, with leaders from seven countries in South Asia and the Indian Ocean region gracing the occasion.
