Siliguri/Birbhum: A 'chaiwala' in West Bengal's Siliguri is distributing tea for free to express his happiness as Prime Minister Narendra Modi will take oath for the second term on Thursday evening.

"Modi ji is taking oath as Prime Minister for the second time. I have deep affection for BJP since 1999 when Atal Bihar Vajpayee was the Prime Minister. I am happily distributing tea for free as today Modi is going to take the oath as the Prime Minister," Nand Lal Sunar, the tea seller told ANI.

Local people flock to Sunar's tea shop here to have tea without paying anything.
