Wednesday promises to be even busier for officials at the Indira Gandhi International airport with leaders of the BIMSTEC nations, Kyrgyzstan, and Mauritius expected to arrive for the swearing-in.

Two days before Narendra Modi takes oath as Prime Minister for a second time on Thursday, Delhi’s airport and railway station authorities are a busy lot — they are making sure all arrangements are in place to assist international leaders invited for the swearing-in and guide newly elected members of Parliament.

Officials aware of developments said the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), which is responsible for security at airports, held a meeting with officials of the external affairs ministry and the airport operator to discuss the modalities. (PTI photo).
