    The Congress party declared Saturday that the results of the Lok Sabha elections signify a 'moral, political, and personal' defeat for Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Despite the BJP securing 240 seats in the 543-member House, they fell short of the majority mark, while the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) collectively won 293 seats. The Congress managed to win 99 seats.

    Congress General Secretary Jairam Ramesh criticised the attempts to find positivity in what he called Modi's 'pathetic' electoral showing. He compared Modi's performance unfavorably with that of Jawaharlal Nehru, who led his party to over 360 seats in multiple elections.

    Ramesh also highlighted that Modi is not the only leader to win three terms, pointing out that Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Indira Gandhi were also sworn in multiple times. He termed the 2024 elections a 'moral defeat' for Modi and a 'morale booster' for the Congress.

    Prime Minister Narendra Modi's third swearing-in ceremony is scheduled for Sunday and will mark another milestone in his consecutive term as India's Prime Minister.

    In a gesture underscoring the warm ties between India and the Maldives, President Mohamed Muizzu has accepted the invitation to attend PM Modi's swearing-in ceremony. 

    The formal invitation was extended by Munu Mahawar, India's High Commissioner to the Maldives, during a courtesy call at the President's Office. Muizzu expressed his gratitude for the invitation and conveyed his eagerness to work closely with Prime Minister Modi to further improve bilateral relations.

    This will be President Muizzu's first official visit to India since his inauguration in November last year.
