Prime Minister Narendra Modi was the first to take the oath. Rajnath Singh and Amit Shah took oath second and third respectively.

When the Prime Minister arrived to take the oath, opposition MPs protested by holding up a mini version of the Constitution.

Members of the Opposition also booed when the panel of aides to the pro-tem speaker was read out. The opposition created a ruckus by shouting 'NEET, NEET' during the swearing-in of Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan. Pro-tem Speaker announced that Rahul Gandhi's resignation from the Wayanad constituency has been accepted. The oath-taking of MPs from Kerala will begin at 4 pm. In the first session, the swearing-in of MPs will take place.

The Prime Minister spoke to the media before the commencement of the first session of the 18th Lok Sabha.
