PM Modi’s third term

For a third consecutive term, Modi is likely to be sworn in as the Prime Minister on June 8 evening, sources told India Today. The NDA scraped past the majority mark to win 292 seats, but the BJP fell short of the majority on its own. After former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru, Modi will be the second leader to retain power for a third term, if the NDA forms the government.
