Thiruvananthapuram (Kerala) [India], May 29 (ANI): Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan will not attend the swearing-in ceremony of Prime Minister Narendra Modi scheduled on May 30.

"I have spoken to other Chief Ministers also. Since it is a ceremonial program, we thought of attending it. Yes, I will go," she had said.
Modi will be sworn in for a second term as the prime minister on Thursday at 7 pm in Rashtrapati Bhavan, along with members of the Union Council of Ministers. (ANI)
