Narendra Modi will take oath as Prime Minister for the 2nd time on the 30th of May at 7 pm at Rashtrapati Bhavan in New Delhi. President Ram Nath Kovind will be administering the oath of office and secrecy to the PM and other members of the Union Council of Ministers.
The Rashtrapati Bhavan, which is expected to host around 8000 eminent people, will serve a light dinner to the visiting dignitaries besides High Tea after the 7 pm ceremony. The High Tea menu is expected to include lemon tarts, sandwiches, samosas, and the appropriately named sweet Rajbhog. The banquet for visiting dignitaries will have vegetarian and non-vegetarian options depending on the preference of guests, starting with a lemon coriander soup.
The major highlight of the dinner will be the signature ‘Dal Raisina’, a variant of popular ‘Maa ki Dal’ that requires around 8 hours to cook.
All the leaders of BIMSTEC (Bay of Bengal Initiative for Multi-Sectoral Technical and Economic Cooperation) nations have been invited.
Besides, inviting top stars of Tamil cinema like Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan, the Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao and Andhra Pradesh CM-designate YS Jagan Mohan Reddy are also likely to attend the swearing-in ceremony.
