Prime Minister-designate Narendra Modi is set to take the oath for his third term on Sunday, equalling the historic tenure of India's first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru. The ceremony will be attended by dignitaries from India's neighborhood and the Indian Ocean Region, officials confirmed.

In a sharp political commentary, Congress Parliamentary Party president Sonia Gandhi described the Lok Sabha election results as a 'political and moral defeat' for Modi. She asserted that the Prime Minister has lost the moral right to leadership.

Meanwhile, Congress leaders continue to await invitations for the swearing-in ceremony, party spokesperson Jairam Ramesh stated. Additionally, a four-member panel has been set up by the education ministry to review grace marks in the NEET-UG exams amid allegations of mark inflation to over 1500 candidates.
