New Delhi (India), May 31 (ANI): Before assuming work on the first day of his second tenure as Prime Minister, Narendra Modi paid tribute to Mahatma Gandhi and Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel by offering flowers to their small marble statues at his office on Friday.
As he stepped into his office, Modi offered roses at the feet of the statutes before assuming the chair.
Later, the PM signed the first file approving a major change in the 'Prime Minister's Scholarship Scheme' under the National Defence Fund before chairing the first Cabinet meeting of the new government.
Riding on muscular nationalism and a strident anti-Congress plank spearheaded by Modi, the BJP on May 23 got an overwhelming majority in the Lok Sabha, crossing on its own the 300 seat mark while storming back to power for the second consecutive term. (ANI)
