It’s official now. India has selected it’s PM yet again. Narendra Modi takes the oath to work for India. It brings back the memory from 2014’s oath, doesn’t it?
Where & Who Is Invited?
The PM will be taking oath at Rashtrapati Bhawan. Rashtrapati Bhawan’s Forecourt will serve as the place for Prime Minster’s Swearing-In Ceremony. The forecourt is a stately path between the main gates and the main building, it has been used for the ceremonial reception of visiting heads of state and heads of government. This might be the biggest Swearing-In Ceremony with more than 8000 attendees in its name. The list includes the like Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi apart from the party’s members. BIMSTEC Leaders are in attendance too. BIMSTEC, Bay of Bengal Initiative for Multi-Sectoral Technical and Economic Cooperation is an organization of countries that are on the rim of the Bay of Bengal which includes Bangladesh, India, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Nepal, and Bhutan. Although Bangladesh’s PM Sheikh Hasina is going to miss the ceremony as she is on her three-nation foreign visit.
Drawing the contrast from the last ceremony, The place of the ceremony is the same: Rashtrapati Bhavan. Last time, SAARC leaders were invited. We can see how strategic and smart these invitations are. Mr. Modi keeping its neighbors close and working for international allies from the very first day of his swearing!
What’s more special about this event is that for the first time a BJP’s workers family will also attend. As we know, things in West Bengal turned violent, one BJP worker gave his life to this violence. The slain West Bengal BJP Worker’s kin has been sent the invitation. Clearly shows PM Modi stands with each and everyone who works for their party and country.
The Tea & Dinner
The party won with 352 seats giving them ample reason to make it big. The event is going to kick off with High Tea. Snacks like Samosas and Paneer Items will find their way into the menu. Then a private dinner is going to take place which includes PM and the leaders of BIMSTEC. The dinner will be hosted by none other than the President of India, Ram Nath Kovind. The dinner will include a long list of dishes, both vegetarian and non-vegetarian. The special dish, however, is Dal Raisina. It’s Rashtrapati Bhavan’s very own delicacy which takes around 48 hours to cook. For this particular event, the preparation for Dal Raisina started on 28 May itself. In simple words, it’s a combination of whole black lentils (Urad Dal) and tomato puree flavored with saffron. Only in India, you can find a Dal turned into a supreme delicacy.
After the dinner, the PM of India Narendra Modi will take his oath for the office at around 7 PM. PTENOTE congratulates the whole country on this auspicious day of swearing-in.
