After the sweeping win in the elections, the Indian Prime Minister-designate Narendra Modi will be taking on his post officially on May 26, and his swearing-in ceremony is seemingly historic in many ways.
Considered among the biggest events ever held in Rashtrapati Bhavan, the ceremony will have around 4000 guests in attendance, which is much higher than regular guests at the event. The large swearing-in ceremony for Modi will be an open air event, for which a stage has been set up rightly.

The event’s security has been upped by many levels, with no bags and phones allowed. Except for the VVIPs who will be using their own cars, all other guests will be offered pick and drop facility.
Along with Modi, 23 cabinet ministers and 10 ministers of the state are to be to be sworn in today.
Early in the morning, Modi tweeted, “On my way to Atal ji’s residence to seek his blessings.” Later, he also visited Rajghat early in the morning and met many of ministers at Gujarat Bhawan over tea for an informal session.
Modi has invited many of the state heads, including Pakistan’s Nawaz Sharif, who will be attending the event with 14-member Pak delegation. Mauritius Prime Minister Navin Ramgoolam and Sri Lanka President Mahinda Rajapaksa has already arrived at the capital.
In line with the events, Pakistan has freed many of the Indian fishermen, while Sri Lanka is soon expected to follow.
