New Delhi: Even before the results, political activity has intensified in Delhi. Meetings of senior BJP leaders are being held. At the same time, news is coming that the BJP, excited by the results of the exit polls, is planning a big political event apart from the swearing-in ceremony of the new government. This event can be organized in the capital Delhi this weekend. According to the news published in the Indian Express, this 'political event' is likely to be organized on the day of the official swearing-in at Bharat Mandapam or Kartavya Path. Preparations are being made to organize it as a display of 'India's cultural heritage', which will possibly include a sound and light show. 8 to 10 thousand people, including representatives of foreign governments, are likely to attend it. According to a senior government official, the plan for the cultural program after the swearing-in ceremony has not been finalized yet, but it may take place on June 9. A senior BJP leader said that the arrangements for hosting a “big gathering” along with the “political event” were also discussed, especially in view of the current weather conditions. “The event is believed to have been discussed by the senior leadership and several venues, from Ramlila Maidan, Red Fort to Bharat Mandapam and Yashobhoomi Convention Centre, have been shortlisted as options,” the party leader said.

In view of the heat, the event is likely to be held at Bharat Mandapam or Yashobhoomi. Bharat Mandapam was the venue of the successful G-20 summit and BJP's national executive last year. Ahead of the counting of votes on June 4, the President's Secretariat has issued a tender for decorative indoor and ornamental plants for the preparations of the swearing-in ceremony of the Prime Minister and other ministers at Rashtrapati Bhavan on May 28. The tender will open today and the contractor will have five days to complete the order.

Preparations for the swearing-in ceremony at Rashtrapati Bhavan began last week, sources said. According to sources, the Central Public Works Department (CPWD) is “already working” on the event. The Lok Sabha Secretariat is making arrangements for the travel of the newly elected MPs from across the country, their arrival at airports and railway stations, and their accommodation in the capital.
