India‘s Prime Minister Narendra Modi has commenced serving his third term in office following a grand inauguration ceremony at the presidential palace in Delhi. The Bharatiya Janata Party leader underlined his commitment to serving the people impartially during the swearing-in process.

Modi’s BJP-led National Democratic Alliance secured a victory in the recent general election, albeit with a narrower margin than anticipated by exit polls. A significant development in the election was the emergence of the United Progressive Alliance as a formidable opponent, winning 234 seats.

The inauguration ceremony witnessed the presence of numerous dignitaries, including leaders from Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka, and the Maldives, highlighting regional diplomacy. However, notable absences from the event were leaders from Pakistan and China, indicating strained relations.

As Modi took the oath administered by President Draupadi Murmu, he affirmed his commitment to upholding India’s sovereignty and constitution. The council of ministers in Modi’s new cabinet also took their oaths during the ceremony, marking the commencement of governance in the new term.

Modi’s victory was not outright, as his NDA coalition, with allies such as the Telugu Desam Party and the Janata Dal, secured the necessary seats for government formation. The BJP’s weakened position in parliament necessitated negotiations with key partners to ensure a stable administration.

The coalition formation involved extensive talks, with prominent allies like the TDP and JD(U) reportedly leveraging their positions for ministerial posts. This shift is expected to introduce a more consultative approach in parliamentary decision-making.

Security was stringent in the capital during the ceremony, underscoring the significance of the event. Regional leaders, including Sheikh Hasina and Ranil Wickremesinghe, graced the occasion, emphasizing the importance of regional cooperation.

In a parallel development, Rahul Gandhi assumed the role of the official opposition leader, marking a new phase in India’s political landscape. The Congress scion’s appointment fills a longstanding gap in the opposition leadership.
