President Murmu Invites Modi to Form Govt, Swearing-In on Sunday, What Modi Said?

President Droupadi Murmu has extended an invitation to Narendra Modi, as the leader of the BJP's National Democratic Alliance, to form the upcoming union government following the coalition's victory in the 2024 Lok Sabha election. Modi is scheduled to take the oath of office, along with members of the new cabinet, on Sunday at 6 pm.

Modi is set to become the first three-term Prime Minister since Congress stalwart Jawaharlal Nehru. After meeting with the President, Modi addressed the media, expressing gratitude for being chosen as the leader by all NDA allies and appointed as the PM-designate. He confirmed that the oath-taking ceremony would take place on Sunday evening.

'Our Constitution gives crores of people hope, strength'

On this occasion Modi said, "Every moment of my life is dedicated to upholding the noble values enshrined in the Constitution of India, given to us by Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar. It is only due to the Constitution that a person like me, born into poverty and in a backward family, is able to serve the nation. Our Constitution gives crores of people hope, strength and dignity."

Modi pledges to lead the country forward

Acknowledging the voters for granting the NDA a third term, Modi affirmed the government's commitment to serving the nation with the same dedication and pace as in the previous terms. He emphasized the continuity of the NDA government and pledged to lead the country forward, drawing on his experience from his previous ten years in office.

'Teenager full of youthful energy'

Modi likened the new Lok Sabha to a teenager full of youthful energy and enthusiasm to achieve goals, describing it as the first 'azadi ka amrit mahotsav' election. As the elected leader of the new NDA MPs, Modi highlighted the alliance's commitment to upholding constitutional values and unity in diversity, recognizing the importance of coalition politics.

Despite the BJP falling short of a majority with 240 seats, the NDA's combined strength of 53 MPs ensures the party's retention of power for a third consecutive term. The support from key allies such as Chandrababu Naidu's TDP and Nitish Kumar's JDU is crucial for the BJP to form and sustain its government over the full five-year term.
