Trinamool Congress president Mamata Banerjee will be sworn in as India’s chief minister for the third time on Wednesday (May 5th). The members of his new cabinet will be sworn in on the same day with the chief minister. Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar will administer the oath. The main challenge now is to reduce the crowd of supporters and administer the oath in accordance with the Covid rules.
Following Covid’s warning, the governor will administer the oath of office to Mamata at 12:15 pm on Wednesday. Only 25 people have been invited to the event. Among them are former Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee and Sourav Ganguly. However, Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee is not going to take oath as he is seriously ill. There is a strong possibility that Sourav will be present.
For the third time as the Chief Minister, he will enter his room on the 14th floor of his office Navanna at noon. Earlier, a guard of honor will be given by the Kolkata Police in Navanne.
After almost two months of campaigning, the last laugh in the vote came from the Trinamool Congress. With a huge victory of 213 seats, she will have to deal with a terrible infection like Covid sitting in the chair of the Chief Minister for the third time.
