PM Modi's swearing in ceremony: Jairam Ramesh tells whether India alliance leaders have got invitation

Congress leader Jairam Ramesh has said that India alliance leaders have not received invitation for Prime Minister Narendra Modi's swearing in ceremony.

Jairam Ramesh said in a press conference, "Only international leaders have been invited for tomorrow's (9 June) swearing in ceremony. We have not been invited yet."

"When and if our leaders get invitation then we will consider it."

"Only international leaders have been invited to the swearing-in ceremony. Our leaders have not received an invitation yet," the Congress general secretary said at a press conference on Saturday.

Earlier, in a social media post, Ramesh claimed that the recent Lok Sabha polls amounted to a "moral, political, and personal" setback for Prime Minister Modi.

'BJP trying to find silver linings in the mandate' 

"The effort to find silver linings in a mandate that represents a moral, political, and personal defeat for Narendra Modi has begun. It is being touted that Narendra Modi is the first to receive a mandate thrice in a row after Jawaharlal Nehru," remarked the Congress general secretary on X.

"Nehru, on the other hand, got 364 seats in 1952, 371 seats in 1957, and 361 seats in 1962 – a 2/3rd majority each time. Yet he remained a complete democrat, nurturing Parliament so very carefully with his constant presence,” he added.

“Neither is Modi the only man since Nehru to be sworn in thrice – in a row or not. Atal Bihari Vajpayee was sworn in thrice in 1996, 1998 and 1999. And Indira Gandhi was sworn in 4 times-in 1966, 1967, 1971 and 1980,” Ramesh said.

NDA alliance leader Narendra Modi is going to take oath as Prime Minister for the third consecutive time. Narendra Modi's swearing in will take place on Sunday evening.

Narendra Modi led NDA alliance has managed to win 293 seats in the Lok Sabha elections. 234 MPs of opposition India alliance have reached Lok Sabha by winning.

In the Congress Working Committee meeting on Saturday, Rahul Gandhi has been appealed to take the post of Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha.
