Appointed the prime minister on Tuesday, Narendra Modi would swear in on May 26.

“I came to call on the president. The president has given me a formal letter (of appointment as PM) and has invited me for oath-taking ceremony on May 26 at 6 pm as we had earlier decided,” Modi, who led the BJP-led NDA to a huge victory in the Lok Sabha elections, told the waiting journalists after meeting President Pranab Mukherjee in Rashtrapati Bhavan on Tuesday afternoon.

Earlier in the day, Modi was unanimously elected leader of the BJP parliamentary party.

Modi will resign as Gujarat chief minister on Wednesday.

Here are some snapshots of Team NDA and its leader after Modi’s meeting with President Mukherjee.
