  • Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to take the oath of office for his third term as India’s Prime Minister on June 8th, Saturday afternoon.
  • This marks a historic moment, as it signifies the continuation of his leadership and the National Democratic Alliance’s (NDA) victory in the general elections.

The Election Victory:

  • The NDA, led by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), secured a rare third term in the Lok Sabha elections. Despite significant losses in three Hindi heartland states, the NDA emerged victorious.
  • The BJP-led alliance is projected to win 291 seats, exceeding the Lok Sabha majority mark of 272 by 17 seats. The BJP itself is expected to win 240 seats independently, relying on allies like the TDP and JD-U for government stability.
  • Notably, the BJP achieved major success in Odisha, winning 19 out of 21 Lok Sabha seats and forming its first government in the state. Their campaign focused on “Odisha asmita,” successfully ending Naveen Patnaik’s over two-decade-long rule.

PM Modi’s Vision:

  • In his address to the nation, PM Modi expressed confidence in forming the new government. He urged bureaucrats to be prepared for a “flood of work” that would begin immediately after he takes oath for the third consecutive term.
  • The BJP’s third term, according to PM Modi, will set the tone for the next 1,000 years. His vision emphasizes economic self-reliance and continued progress for India.

Oath-Taking Ceremony:

  • On June 8th, PM Modi will once again take the oath of office, along with his ministers, at the Rashtrapati Bhavan. This ceremony symbolizes continuity and the responsibility bestowed upon him by the electorate.
  • The Union Cabinet is also expected to take the oath on the same day, marking the formal beginning of the new government’s tenure.


  • As India looks ahead to the next phase of governance, PM Modi’s leadership remains pivotal. His commitment to development, economic reforms, and national progress will shape the country’s trajectory in the coming years.
