New Delhi, May 17 - Hundreds of people, including BJP supporters, thronged the Delhi airport Saturday to welcome BJP leader Narendra Modi who is set to take over as the prime minister after the party's win in the Lok Sabha polls.

There were many young party supporters in the crowd, donning saffron caps that had Namo for PM printed on them.
