Narendra Modi Sworn in as Prime Minister for Third Term at Rashtrapati Bhavan

New Delhi, June 9, 2024 — Narendra Modi took the oath of office as Prime Minister for the third time in a grand ceremony at Rashtrapati Bhavan. The event commenced with the national anthem, setting the stage for Modi’s swearing-in. Following Modi, several key figures from his cabinet also took their oaths, solidifying the leadership of the new government.

Amit Shah was the first to be sworn in as a minister in Modi’s cabinet, followed by Rajnath Singh. BJP leader Nitin Gadkari was next, taking the oath as a central cabinet minister in the NDA government led by Modi. This was followed by the swearing-in of JP Nadda.

Prominent BJP leaders including Shivraj Singh Chouhan, S. Jaishankar, and Nirmala Sitharaman also took their oaths as central cabinet ministers, marking their continued roles in Modi’s administration.

From Bihar, Jitan Ram Manjhi, convenor of HAM and MP from Gaya, was the first to be sworn in as a cabinet minister. Following him, JD(U) leader and Munger MP Rajiv Ranjan alias Lalan Singh took the oath as a minister in Modi’s cabinet.

Other notable leaders who took the oath as central cabinet ministers included Bhupender Yadav, Jyotiraditya Scindia, Prahlad Joshi, Ashwini Vaishnav, and Jual Oram, indicating a diverse and robust cabinet team.

The ceremony was graced by the presence of seven distinguished guests, including heads of state: Sri Lankan President Ranil Wickremesinghe, Maldivian President Dr. Mohamed Muizzu, Seychelles Vice President Ahmed Afif, Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, Mauritian Prime Minister Pravind Jugnauth, Nepalese Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda,’ and Bhutanese Prime Minister Shering Tobgay.

BJP leaders Kiren Rijiju, Annapurna Devi, and Gajendra Singh Shekhawat were also sworn in as central cabinet ministers, completing the roster of prominent figures in Modi’s new government.

This term marks a significant shift as the BJP, lacking an outright majority, is forming the government with a coalition majority. As a result, the number of allied parties in the government has increased, leading to a larger council of ministers compared to the previous terms.

Modi’s third swearing-in reflects the sustained trust and support he enjoys, both within the party and among the electorate, setting the stage for continued efforts towards national development and governance.
