Capping a landslide victory in the Lok Sabha elections, Narendra Modi, along with his Councils of Minister on Thursday took oath as the 15th Prime Minister of India in the forecourt of the Rashtrapati Bhavan.

President Ram Nath Kovind administered the oath of office and secrecy at a grand function which was attended by Heads and representatives from BIMSTEC countries, besides Prime Minister of Mauritius and President of Kyrgyzstan.

Overseas friends of the party from 15 countries including the US, Australia, Germany, and the UK, were also invited.

Riding high on the planks of muscular nationalism and anti-Congress, BJP, which had won 282 seats in 2014, improved its tally by notching up 303 seats. Along with its NDA allies, the number swelled to 353 in the 543-member Lower House of the Parliament.
