Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to meet President Ram Nath Kovind this evening around 8 pm and stake claim to form the new government.
Yesterday, the council of ministers led by PM Modi submitted their resignation which was accepted by President Kovind, paving way for the formation of the new government.
Meanwhile, the full Election Commission on Saturday called on President Kovind and handed over the list of 542 newly-elected members of the Lok Sabha that will enable him to initiate the formal process of new government formation.
Accepting PM Modi’s resignation, the president had asked them to continue as a caretaker until the formation of a new government.
PM Modi is expected to take oath for his second term next week. Asked whether foreign dignitaries would be invited to the swearing-in ceremony, the sources said, “As of now there is no such information. We will share the details once a decision is taken.”
