Congress president Rahul Gandhi and his mother Sonia Gandhi will attend Prime Minister Narendra Modi's oath ceremony tomorrow, sources have said. PM Modi's second swearing-in will be a grand event at the presidential palace Rashtrapati Bhavan in the presence of politicians, world leaders and celebrities.
Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi's decision stands out after an acrimonious election that saw PM Modi and other BJP leaders relentlessly targeting them as well as Priyanka Gandhi Vadra; the Gandhi siblings hitting right back.

The BJP, led by PM Modi, won a staggering victory in the national election and a clear mandate to retain power for a second term - a feat achieved only by the likes of Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi in the past.

Leaders from BIMSTEC countries, the Prime Minister of Mauritius and the President of Kyrgystan - who is also the chair of Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) - will attend the oath ceremony.

Chief ministers and industry leaders have also been invited.

Chief Ministers of non-BJP ruled states will also attend the event, except for Bengal's Mamata Banerjee, who pulled out accusing the BJP of trying to politicise the occasion. She accused the BJP of falsely alleging that 54 of its workers were killed in political violence in Bengal and then inviting their families to the oath.
