New Delhi:25/5/19: Narendra Modi will take oath as Prime Minister of India for a second consecutive term on May 30, according to official confirmation on Saturday.

The Prime Minister is expected to call on President Ram Nath Kovind at around 8 pm.
The sources said leaders of the ruling National Democratic Alliance (NDA) are also expected to meet the President at the Rashtrapati Bhawan at around 7 pm before Prime Minister meets President to stake his claim for formation of the government.
