US looking forward to continuing further partnership with India, says Matthew Miller congratulating Narendra Modi over Lok Sabha polls victory

The United States has congratulated Prime Minister Narendra Modi for scripting the third straight victory in the general polls and said his country would continue to further the partnership with India to promote prosperity and innovation, address the climate crisis, and ensure a free and open Indo-Pacific region.

"The United States congratulates Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the National Democratic Alliance on their victory in the 2024 Lok Sabha general elections.  With approximately 650 million voters casting their ballots over the past six weeks, these elections represent the largest exercise in democracy in human history," Matthew Miller, the spokesperson of the US State Department, said in a statement.

"We commend Indian voters, poll workers, civil society, and journalists for their commitment and vital contributions to India’s democratic processes and institutions," he said.

Miller further said: "We look forward to continuing to further our partnership with the Indian government to promote prosperity and innovation, address the climate crisis, and ensure a free and open Indo-Pacific region."

Narendra Modi’s swearing-in ceremony is likely to be rescheduled on June 9 instead of June 8 as known earlier, to accommodate various heads of states from other countries, especially India's immediate neighbours, according to media reports quoting sources.

Instead of June 8, the oath-taking ceremony can be held at 6 pm on Sunday as the final schedule is being worked out, said reports.

Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, Sri Lankan President Ranil Wickremesinghe will be among the foreign leaders to attend the swearing-in ceremony of Modi as the Prime Minister is set for a historic third consecutive term equalling the record of India's first prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru.

The premiers of Bhutan, Nepal and Mauritius are also likely to be invited for the swearing-in ceremony.
