ANI  |  Politics 

New Delhi [India], May 29 (ANI): More than 100 NRIs will fly to Delhi tomorrow to attend Prime Minister Narendra Modi's oath-taking ceremony. "Close to 100 plus NRIs are coming to attend the swearing-in again on their own expense just to show their support and affection for Prime Minister Modi," said Vijay Chauthaiwale, in-charge of BJP's foreign affairs wing.

He further informed that as many as 1000 NRIs were involved in the electioneering of the Prime Minister. "1000s of NRIs were involved in the campaigning one way or other. Many of them worked hard in their own countries. Around 600-700 NRIs actually came here and stayed for 2-4 weeks for doing campaigns at the grass root level. Their contribution is well recognised."

"The stature of India has gone up significantly on the global stage, therefore, the stature of our diaspora has also gone up significantly. No wonder people are looking forward to the second term of Prime Minister Modi very enthusiastically and with very lot of expectations," he added.

He also spoke about the India-US relation saying, "The US- India relationship is traditionally very strong and under Prime Minister Narendra Modi which also saw a change of leadership within the USA from Barack Obama to Trump. PM Modi has a very good personal rapport with both the presidents. India has developed strategic partnerships with the US. We are collaborating on several fronts such as defense, security, cyber security, anti-terrorism, money laundering."

The BJP's foreign affairs wing in-charge also assured that the problem pertaining to the Indian software engineers in the USA will surely be resolved soon under the leadership of Prime minister Modi.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi's oath-taking ceremony for the second consecutive term will be held on May 30, 2019, at Rashtrapati Bhawan, New Delhi. President Ram Nath Kovind will administer the oath of office and secrecy to the Prime Minister and other members of the Union Council.

Top leaders and guests have also been invited from around the world and across the nation to attend the oath-taking ceremony of the Prime Minister.
