This was decided a meeting of the Parliamentary Board, the highest decision-making body of the party chaired by BJP chief Rajnath Singh and attended by Modi, L K Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi, Sushma Swaraj and other top leaders.
In a brief address to the media, Rajnath Singh said the NDA allies will also be invited for a meeting on the same day.
Dismissing media speculation, he said no date has been fixed for swearing-in of Modi as the Prime Minister. It will be decided after the Parliamentary Party meeting.
Singh was addressing media along with Modi, L K Advani and other top leaders after over one-hour meeting of Parliamentary Board which adopted a resolution applauding the stewardship of its Prime Ministerial candidate for his “tireless efforts” and “inspirational” leadership.
