India’s Modi Sworn In As PM For Third Term

 

India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi commenced his third term in office on Sunday following unexpected election results that necessitated coalition negotiations for governance.

Modi’s formal oath-taking ceremony, attended by officials from his Hindu-nationalist party and coalition members, underscored his commitment to upholding the constitution of India.

While Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) enjoyed outright rule for the past decade, this election yielded a different outcome, prompting discussions with the National Democratic Alliance (NDA), a 15-member coalition, to secure the necessary parliamentary support.

As Modi embarked on his new term, speculation swirled about the composition of his cabinet, with notable figures like Rajnath Singh, Amit Shah, and Nitin Gadkari reaffirming their roles in the government.

Modi’s recent activities, characterized as ‘very busy,’ according to his pre-ceremony statement, reflect ongoing efforts in government formation.

Against the backdrop of the presidential palace steps, Modi, clad in traditional attire, took the oath, setting the stage for several ministers and deputy ministers to follow suit.

The ceremony drew a diverse audience, including BJP supporters, regional leaders, and prominent Bollywood personalities like Shahrukh Khan, along with influential business magnates such as Gautam Adani and Mukesh Ambani, signaling the broad range of Modi’s political alliances.
