The stage is set for Narendra Modi’s grand swearing-in ceremony to be held at Rashtrapati Bhawan on May 30th, 2019 after the Bharatiya Janata Party(BJP)-led National Democratic Alliance(NDA) registered a massive victory across the country in the 2019 Lok Sabha Elections. Modi will take oath for the second consecutive term along with a new council of ministers today.

The constitutional ceremony will start from 7 pm today at the Rashtrapati Bhavan in New Delhi. In 2014, the ceremony had happened at around 4.30 pm but considering the hot weather, the time of the event has been changed. The ceremony will be of about 90 minutes.
