New Delhi, May 25 (IANS) Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address a rally in Saharanpur in Uttar Pradesh on May 26 to mark the completion of two years of his government whereas the BJP plans to reach out to people to convey its achievements.
The party on Wednesday released seven handouts on the government’s achievements in the past two years in various fields. The booklets, divided into seven themes, were released at an event attended by party chief Amit Shah.
Commerce Minister Nirmala Sitharaman gave a power-point presentation at the function, where Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar, Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu and Urban Development Minister Venkaiah Naidu were also present.
BJP secretary Shrikant Sharma said that apart from Modi’s Saharanpur rally, events will be held in 200 big cities during the “development fortnight” to be observed by the party.
The BJP’s elected representatives will stay in their respective constituencies to convey the government’s works.
“In seats where there are no elected representatives of the BJP, its office-bearers and former MPs will reach out to the people,” he said.
Sitharaman said there was “not a word of corruption” against the government.
“This is purpose-driven, performing government. The uncertainty is over. It is a responsive government,” she said.
The handouts under the title “Mera desh badal raha hai, aage badh raha hai (my country is changing. It is progressing)” carry Modi’s photograph on the front as also his quotes.
The government work has been divided under seven broad themes — ‘Building infrastructure for a modern and futuristic India’, ‘Empowering nari shakti’, ‘A new governance paradigm’, ‘Government of the firsts’, ‘Empowering the poor’, ‘Prosperous farmers for a prosperous India’ and ‘Unleashing an era of youth and development’.
As part of the party’s plan to reach out to the people, Shah will address a press conference in the national capital while all union ministers will take part in programmes in different parts of the country.
