DEHRADUN: The media hype around Narendra Modi's participation in the swearing-in ceremony of new Uttarakhand chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat drew huge crowds but they were disappointed as the Prime Minister left without addressing them.

Enthusiastic spectators who stood on their chairs to have a better view of the Prime Minister as he climbed up the stage at the Parade Ground were disappointed when Modi left without making a speech.

As the oath-taking ceremony was over, Modi congratulated the newly-sworn-in members of the BJP government and posed for a photograph with them. He then moved to the other side of the podium to shake hands with BJP chief Amit Shah, home minister Rajnath Singh, Haryana chief minister Manohar Khattar and the newly-elected BJP MLAs.

With the new chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat in tow, Modi left the venue waving to the crowds.
