What did Narendra Modi wear in 2014 and 2019 for oath ceremony?

Dressed in usual kurta pyjama paired with his staple coat, Modi took oath as the Prime Minister of India in 2014 and 2019. Interestingly, his sleeveless coat, often termed as the Modi jacket, was in the same shade as the one that he wore in 2014 while taking oath as the Prime Minister for the first time.

World leaders to witness Narendra Modi's oath ceremony

Maldives President Mohamed Muizzu, Mauritius Prime Minister Pravind Kumar Jugnauth and his Bhutanese counterpart Tshering Tobgay arrived in Delhi on Sunday to attend the swearing-in ceremony of Prime Minister-designate. The other world leaders attending the ceremony are Bangladesh President Sheikh Hasina, Vice-President of Seychelles Ahmed Afif, Nepal Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ and Sri Lankan President Ranil Wickremesinghe.

Earlier, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leadership and allies held a series of meetings for a formula of sharing berths among different constituents of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) in the new government.

Till now Jawaharlal Nehru was the only Indian Prime Minister to have won three consecutive polls. PM Modi is the second leader to do so. Jawaharlal Nehru registered a vote share of 45 per cent in the 1952 election which rose to 47.8 per cent in 1957, but in the 1963 election the vote share dipped to 44.7 per cent, which is marginally lower than his first electoral win.

After being chosen as the leader of the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA), Modi on Friday met President Murmu, who formally invited him to form the government. She fed him 'dahi-cheeni' (curd mixed with sugar), considered to be auspicious in Indian culture, before undertaking important tasks or a new venture.
