On a day when Prime Minister Narendra Modi took an oath of office and secrecy in a grand ceremony in Rashtrapati Bhavan Thursday, yoga guru and Patanjali founder Baba Ramdev took a jibe at the opposition stating that they should practice ‘Kapalbhati’ for next 10-15 years in order to manage stress.

“Under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the country will get freedom from economic, conceptual and cultural penury… All the ministers who have taken oath today, including Amit Shah, Piyush Goyal and Nitin Gadkari among others will live up to people’s expectations. In the next five years, they will do hard work,” Ramdev told ANI.

“I believe that for the next 10 to 15 years, the Opposition leaders need to do a lot of ‘Kapalabhati’ and ‘Anulom Vilom’, only then they will be able to control their stress,” he added.

Along with PM Modi, the Union Council of Ministers also took the oath, which was administered by President Ram Nath Kovind.
BJP chief Amit Shah made an entry into the Union Cabinet even as outgoing External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, who was reported to have received a call in the morning, was not made a part of the new Modi government. Surprisingly, former foreign secretary S Jaishankar was inducted into the incoming cabinet.

As many as 54 of the 58 ministers sworn in on Thursday (May 30) are from the ruling party, while key allies – Shiv Sena, SAD, LJP and RPI (A) were given one ministerial berth each. JD(U) opted to give up its ministerial berth as Nitish Kumar felt that the party was given ‘symbolic representation’ in the new Cabinet.

While 45 of the 58 members are from Lok Sabha, remaining 13 are from the Upper House of the Parliament, the Rajya Sabha. 20 of the 58 ministers are first-timers and there are six women ministers in the Union Council of Ministers inducted today. Bhratatiya Janata Party (BJP) routed the Congress-led opposition in the recently concluded Lok Sabha elections in which the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) got even a bigger mandate than 2014 with a tally of 353 seats. The Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) got just 90 seats out of 542 seats on which polling was conducted between April 11 and May 19.
