As soon as he entered his office, he paid obeisance to the Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi by offering flower tributes to his photograph.

However, even before assuming charge, Modi had already began his official work last night by holding a meeting with top officials.

Soon after he was sworn-in as prime minister, Modi sought support, blessings and active participation of the people to take India's development journey to newer heights.       

"Together we will script a glorious future for India," he said in his first message on the relaunched PMO website. "Let us together dream of a strong, developed and inclusive India that actively engages with the global community to strengthen the cause of world peace and development," he added.

In his first bilateral meeting with international leaders after assuming charge, Modi held talks with Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai.

In their more than half an hour meeting, Modi and Karzai discussed ways to enhance cooperation in the wake of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation combat troops withdrawal from the war-torn country.

Modi was assisted in the talks by External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Foreign Secretary Sujatha Singh among others.

The meeting with Karzai was followed by Modi's talks with Maldivian President Abdulla Yameen Abdul Gayoom at the ceremonial Hyderabad House in New Delhi.
