Gautam Adani, SRK at PM-designate Narendra Modi’s oath ceremony

Industrialists Gautam Adani, Mukesh Ambani, superstars Shah Rukh Khan, Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar are among the guests attending Narendra Modi’s oath ceremony at Rashtrapati Bhavan on Sunday.

PM Modi took oath for a record third term, however this time he is heavily reliant upon support from allies with his party, BJP, winning 240 seats – falling 32 short of the 272-majority mark. Chandrababu Naidu’s Telugu Desam Party or TDP (the largest ally) and Nitish Kumar’s Janata Dal United or JDU (the second largest ally) are the coalition partners in the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA). 

With the incoming Prime Minister yet to announce the makeup of his cabinet, the ceremony at the Rashtrapati Bhavan will be keenly watched when around 50-odd ministers-to-be take the oath on the constitution.

PM Modi’s BJP won comfortable majority in 2014 and 2019 but failed to repeat its performance in 2024, defying analysts’ expectations and exit polls.

Actor Vikrant Massey and filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani are also attending the event.

“This is a historic third term… I am looking forward to the next 5 years with the NDA government… The government has worked in the last 10 years. I have witnessed change. India is a big country and change doesn’t happen overnight, it requires time,” Mr Massey told news agency ANI.
