Sonia, Rahul to attend Modi’s swearing-in
Congress president Sonia Gandhi and Rahul will represent Congress at the swearing-in ceremony of Narendra Modi as prime minister on Monday. The Congress president had congratulated Modi on 20 May hours after he was elected leader of BJP parliamentary party and the NDA, thereby setting the stage for him to become prime minister.
Sonia is also the chairperson of the Congress-led UPA. Rahul, who is the Congress vice-president, had led the party in the Lok Sabha polls. Congress saw the worst debacle after remaining in office for ten years.
Meanwhile, Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah on Saturday said he has been invited by both President Pranab Mukherjee and prime minister-designate Narendra Modi to attend the latter’s swearing-in ceremony.
