Narendra Modi sworn in for a second term

Narendra Modi has been sworn in for a second term as India’s prime minister after his party won a landslide majority in the recent election. Thousands were invited to the ceremony in Delhi, including regional leaders and Bollywood stars. But notable names were excluded, including Pakistan’s PM Imran Khan, and some opposition leaders stayed away. The election was seen as a referendum on Mr Modi, 68, who is adored by many but also accused of stoking divisions. Dynamic, dedicated and determined, Narendra Modi has arrived as a ray of hope in the lives of a billion Indians. His laser focus on development and proven ability to deliver results have made him one of India’s most popular leaders. His promise is to build a nation that is strong, prosperous and inclusive, where each and every Indian can realize their hopes and aspirations.
