In a significant political milestone, Odisha's outgoing Chief Minister and BJD president Naveen Patnaik on Monday extended his congratulations to Narendra Modi, who has secured a record-equalling third term as Prime Minister of India.

During an elaborate ceremony at the Rashtrapati Bhavan on Sunday evening, President Droupadi Murmu administered the oath of secrecy and office to Modi, 30 Cabinet ministers, five Ministers of State with independent charge, and 36 Ministers of State.

Patnaik took to social media platform X to convey his wishes, stating, 'Congratulate Shri @narendramodi ji on being sworn in as the Prime Minister of India for the record third consecutive term. Wish you a successful tenure and best wishes to your team in fulfilling the aspirations of the people. May our beloved country reach new heights of development under your leadership.'

Narendra Modi, 73, has now joined the ranks of Jawaharlal Nehru as the only prime ministers to achieve three consecutive terms in office.
