Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav and Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh will go to the swearing-in ceremony of Prime Minister designate Narendra Modi, an official stated.

Sharif, who has hailed Modi’s “impressive victory”, accepted the invite, which was carried to all principals of regime from the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) which includes Pakistan.

“Mr Modi is finally aiming at smart governance where the top strata of government will be downsized and there would be expansion at the weed-root level,” the statement issued from Gujarat Bhawan stated, while also providing an official account of deliberations over the last few days on government organization.

“Focus is on convergence in the actions of various ministries where one cabinet minister will be leading a cluster of ministries working in complimentary sectors,” the instruction said, indicating that it was necessary for Modi’s dictum of Minimum Government and Maximum Governance.

Mr. Rajapaksa is between the six SAARC heads of state invited to the swearing-in, which will be seen by nearly 4000 clients in the forecourt of Rashtrapati Bhavan on Monday evening.
