Following his unanimous election as leader by the NDA Parliamentary Party, Prime Minister Narendra Modi met with President Droupadi Murmu on Friday to formally seek her approval to form the government.

Heading a coalition where the BJP, for the first time under his leadership, lacks a majority, Modi is slated to be sworn in for a third consecutive term as Prime Minister at Rashtrapati Bhavan on Sunday at 7:15 pm. Emphasizing the importance of consensus alongside majority rule, Modi stated, “While securing a majority is essential for government formation, achieving consensus is crucial for effective governance.”

Modi described the NDA as a “natural alliance” with roots laid by its leaders three decades ago, nurtured by public trust. He expressed the alliance’s commitment to unity in all governmental decisions.

Addressing the NDA members before they departed for Rashtrapati Bhavan, Modi assured, “I assure our nation that while we have the mandate to govern, our efforts will prioritize consensus-building to propel the country forward.”

After the meeting at Rashtrapati Bhavan, Modi briefed reporters, saying, “The NDA convened this morning, reaffirming their support for me. I have informed the President that June 9 evening is suitable for the swearing-in ceremony. The final decision rests with the President’s office, and I will submit the list of ministers by then.”

“NDA I, NDA II, and now NDA III represent continuity. We will carry this forward with enhanced vigor and clarity. With a decade of experience, including my early years in 2014, we are well-prepared to hit the ground running,” he added.

“In the past decade, India’s global stature has risen significantly, earning us recognition as a global friend (Vishwabandhu). The next five years will be crucial on the global stage. Despite challenges, we are acknowledged as the world’s fastest-growing economy. With stable governance and familiar leadership, India will increasingly be looked upon globally. We are resolute in our onward journey,” Modi affirmed.

Following the NDA delegation’s visit, Rashtrapati Bhavan issued a statement: “Having reviewed the received letters of support, the President has appointed Shri Narendra Modi as the Prime Minister of India under Article 75(1) of the Constitution. The decision acknowledges the BJP-led NDA alliance as the largest pre-election coalition capable of securing majority support in the newly constituted 18th Lok Sabha to form a stable government.”

During the NDA meeting at the historic Central Hall of the old Parliament building, Modi, known for his energetic electoral campaigns, positioned himself as a coalition leader, emphasizing inclusivity for a prosperous India.

Expressing confidence in his coalition leadership, Modi stated, “The NDA has spanned nearly three decades, a significant achievement. I can confidently assert that this alliance stands as our most successful endeavor.”
