Kathmndu , May 30th 2019

Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli will be attending the oath-taking ceremony of his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi, in New Delhi today.

PM Oli, on Monday, received an official invitation to attend the ceremony.

Narendra Modi will officially begin his second term as the Prime Minister of India after his oath-taking ceremony scheduled to take place at 7:00 pm today. Modi became India’s prime minister for a second term after the landslide victory of his Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and its coalition the National Democratic Alliance in the 17th Lok Sabha election.

PM Oli is scheduled to leave Kathmandu for New Delhi at 1:35 pm today. He will be accompanied by his spouse and other high-ranking government officials.

During his visit, PM Oli will hold bilateral meeting with his Indian counterpart. But the issue of the bilateral meeting has not been disclosed yet. However, MoFA source has said that they will discuss relations between the two countries and will be disclosed after their meeting if something happens.

The heads of state/government of the BIMSTEC nations, Kyrgyz President Sooronbay Jeenbekov, the current chair of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) and Mauritius Prime Minister Pravind Kumar Jugnauth have also been invited to PM Modi’s swearing-in ceremony.

The heads of state/government of the SAARC nations have not been invited in Modi’s oath-taking ceremony this time. It has been noted that the representatives from Maldives and Afghanistan were invited during his first swearing-in. The list of SAARC nations also includes Pakistan.

In 2014, when Modi was elected as the Indian PM for the first time then prime minister of Nepal Sushil Koirala attended the swearing-in ceremony with heads of states of South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation.

PM Oli will return home the day after the oath-taking ceremony, on May 31.
