BANGALORE: The state BJP office at Malleswaram was the hub of all celebrations on Monday with Narendra Modi taking oath as the Prime Minister.

Party workers burst crackers and distributed sweets to celebrate the occasion.

In other parts of the city, sweets were distributed to celebrate the BJP’s resounding victory in the Lok Sabha polls. In Rajarajeshwarinagar, around 15,000 laddus  were reportedly distributed. The scene at the BJP office was exuberant and boxes of jalebis were distributed as soon as the swearing-in ceremony started at 6 pm.

Party workers burst firecrackers and beat drums encouraging people to dance when Modi rose to take the oath of office.

The party had reportedly arranged around two lakh laddus for distribution. Poojas were also performed in several places and ‘digital raths’ were positioned at strategic points to live telecast the ceremony.

Many others chose to celebrate the event at home. “We had a small party at home with friends from Gujarat to celebrate Modi becoming the PM. We are happy to see him take charge of the country and hope that he will perform well,” said Kaushik Chatterjee, a techie from Gujarat working in the city, who watched the ceremony at his home.

The NaMo brigade, a group of volunteers who worked during the elections to ensure the BJP victory in the state was also ecstatic. On the future plans of the group, convener Naresh Shenoy told Express: “We have dissolved the NaMo brigade officially as the mission has been accomplished. However, we shall relaunch ourselves as the Yuva brigade and continue our work.”

Shenoy’s volunteers worked side-by-side with BJP workers to ensure the celebrations went on without a glitch. Elsewhere in the state, these volunteers also distributed sweets in Mysore, Mangalore and other cities and towns.
