Modi is Gujarat CM Again for Fourth Term


Ahmedabad, Dec 26 (IANS): Cheered by hundreds of thousands, Narendra Modi Wednesday took oath as Gujarat's chief minister for the fourth time, after leading the BJP to a sweeping win in assembly elections.

Governor Kamla Beniwal administered the oath of office and secrecy to the 62-year-old Bharatiya Janata Party leader, who has ruled Gujarat since 2001, at the Sardar Patel Stadium here.

An estimated 2.5 lakh people packing the ground roared in joy as a visibly confident Modi took the oath in Gujarati.

Seven cabinet ministers and nine ministers of state also took oath.

After the brief ceremony, the chief minister went around the stadium in an open vehicle, waving to the cheering crowds and flashing a 'V' sign.

Among those present on the occasion were BJP leaders Nitin Gadkari and Sushma Swaraj, Chief Ministers J. Jayalalithaa of Tamil Nadu and Parkash Singh Badal of Punjab, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray, MNS leader Raj Thackeray and Indian National Lok Dal chief Om Prakash Chautala.

In the December elections, the BJP won 115 of the 182 seats. This was two short of its 2007 tally of 117. The Congress was bruised, bagging 61 seats.

Modi is scheduled to attend the National Development Council (NDC) meeting in New Delhi Thursday.

Before leaving for the venue, Modi tweeted: "Leaving for swearing in ceremony. Glad to see love of so many people and the presence of distinguished leaders."

A still earlier tweet of Wednesday by Modi said: "To make a great future India, the whole secret lies in organization... coordination of wills."

    HEY, Aloka Nath, Bengaluru,

    YOU ARE AGREEING THAT ITALIAN IS A DICTATOR.

    YOUR ITALIN LED UPA IS GROUP OF SCAMSTERS SUPPORTED BY SP,BSP.DMK.NCP.TMC & SEVERAL OTHER PARTIES.

    YOU FIGHT EACH OTHER IN UTTAR PRADESH & SUPPORT EACH OTHER IN DELHI FOR LOOT.

    IF SP & BSP WANTS TO WITHDRAW SUPPORT , YOUR ITALAIN LED CONGRESS SHOWS CBI CARD, ED NOTICE, RAIDS , IT HARASSMENT ETCC.

    ONCE SP & BSP AGREE TO SUPPORT ALL NOTICES BECOME VOID.

    CAN YOU TELL ME WHO TOOK 125 CRORES FROM WALMART?

    CAN YOU TELL ME HOW MUCH MONEY STACKED IN SWISS BANK?
