New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi assumed office on Tuesday, a day after being sworn-in by President Pranab Mukherjee. Modi was received at South block office of the PMO by newly appointed Principal Secretary Nripendra Mishra and some other officials.
As soon as he entered his office, he paid obeisance to the Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi by offering flower tributes to his photograph. However, even before assuming charge, Modi had already began his official work last night itself by holding a meeting with top officials.
Soon after he was sworn-in as Prime Minister, Modi sought support, blessings and active participation of the people to take India's development journey to newer heights.
"Together we will script a glorious future for India," he said in his first message on the relaunched PMO website. "Let us together dream of a strong, developed and inclusive India that actively engages with the global community to strengthen the cause of world peace and development," he added.
Narendra Modi was sworn in as the country's 15th Prime Minister on May 26. The grand ceremony witnessed the participation of over 4,000 guests, 8 SAARC nation heads along with Bollywood stars and top industrialists. After an astounding victory in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, Modi and his ministers will finally take charge.
A young team, no dynasty, and marginalisation of the old guard marked the new team of Narendra Modi, who was sworn in as India’s 15th Prime Minister Monday evening. Mr Modi started his innings with a team of 45 ministers, that included 23 Cabinet ministers, 10 ministers of state with independent charge and 12 other ministers of state.
