New Delhi | The newly elected MPs of the National Democratic Alliance will meet today to formally elect Prime Minister Narendra Modi as their new leader.
The BJP said the meeting will take place in Parliament’s Central Hall at 5 pm. Prior to this, BJP MPs will meet separately at Parliament House. Modi is expected to address the MPs following his election as their leader.
According to sources, Modi is likely to visit his parliamentary constituency Varanasi on May 28, before oath-taking by new members on May 30.
Most of the existing Union Ministers will be retaining their position, however speculations about Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj are dense that they would not be taking the new role in the cabinet, due to their ill health.
