Modi sworn in ahead of unveiling revamped govt

NEW DELHI, May 30, 2019 (BSS/AFP) – India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi
was sworn in today along with his ministers including for the first time the
chief of his ruling BJP for an historic second term.

Modi was the first of more than 50 cabinet ministers and deputy ministers
to take the oath of office at the presidential palace in front of 8,000
people including Bangladesh President M Abdul Hamid and other South Asian
leaders, Bollywood stars and leading political figures.

Modi, whose right-wing Bharatiya Janata Party made history by increasing
their majority in a second straight landslide election win, was to announce
new finance and foreign ministers as well as find a top post for his trusted
enforcer, BJP president Amit Shah.
