Uttarakhand Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami on Sunday said the swearing-in ceremony of PM-designate Narendra Modi would be “historic”.
“Today is a historic day. A government will be formed under the leadership of PM Modi for the third time. Historic decisions will be taken during the third term,” said Dhami.
“I extend greetings to Narendra Modi and to those who will take oath as Union Ministers,” said CM Dhami.
Meanwhile, Narendra Modi on Sunday morning offered tribute to Mahatma Gandhi, former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee, and also offered homage at the war memorial ahead of his swearing-in as the Prime Minister.

PM Modi will take the oath of office at 7:15 PM today along with his council of ministers in a ceremony at Rashtrapati Bhavan.
The National Democratic Alliance (NDA) unanimously passed a resolution to elect Narendra Modi as their leader on June 5.
With today’s swearing-in, Narendra Modi will become the only leader after former PM Jawaharlal Nehru, who has been elected for a third consecutive term after completing the full tenure of each previous term.
All security measures have been put in place for the mega event. Five companies of paramilitary forces will be deployed to ensure the safety and security of Rashtrapati Bhavan.
The BJP bagged 240 seats and the National Democratic Alliance secured 293 seats out of 543 Lok Sabha seats. Congress fought the election as part of the INDIA bloc and the parties together were able to prevent BJP from getting a majority on its own in Lok Sabha. (ANI)
