Modi on Tuesday congratulated newly elected Pakistani PM Shehbaz Sharif.

"Congratulations to @CMShehbaz on being sworn in as the Prime Minister of Pakistan," the Indian PM posted on X congratulating his Pakistani counterpart.

Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) president Shehbaz Sharif on Monday took oath as the Prime Minister of the financially struggling nation, ending a political crisis that was created after the national polls after none of the contesting outfits secured the majority votes needed to form the government.

President Arif Alvi administered his oath to office.

The country's national assembly on Sunday elected Shehbaz Sharif as the 24th elected prime minister of the country.

Sharif held the post of PM after PTI chief Imran Khan was ousted from power in 2022.

Sharif was in power till August when the country's parliament was dissolved ahead of polls.

Pakistan has been ruled by a caretaker government since then.

After his election,Sharif promised to 'steer Pakistan' back to the shore as the nation continued to struggle financially.
