New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) launched on Saturday the ‘Seva Saptah‘ or the service week to mark the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s 69th birthday. This week-long celebration will be observed from 14 September to 20 September.
During this week, several social initiatives will be undertaken by the party all over the country, as per the party sources. Union Home Minister Amit Shah and BJP working President JP Nadda inaugurated the celebration at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) hospital today.
BJP national general secretary Arun Singh told ANI:
“If there is anybody who can solve the problems faced by the poor people in the country, it is Narendra Modi. Therefore, on September 17, which is Narendra Modi’s birthday, BJP has decided to celebrate Sept 14-20 as ‘Seva Saptah’.”
Further, he said-
“On September 14 at 8 am, Amit Shah will start the programme from AIIMS, along with BJP working President JP Nadda. Shah will distribute fruits, meet the patients in the general ward of the hospital and also oversee the cleaning and sanitation work there.”
Besides this, Singh said that many programs like exhibitions showcasing the social work done by PM Modi would be organized in all districts by party workers, and they will conduct other programs across India to assist people.
“During ‘Seva Saptah’, blood donation camps, health check-up camps, eye check-up, and operation camps will be organised by the party workers for the needy across the nation.”
“They will also take an oath to completely stop the use of single-use plastics, participate in cleanliness drives and will also make attempts for water conservation during the period.”
At the inauguration of the service campaign, they distributed fruits among the patients. Also, they swept the floors of the hospital and emphasized the importance of service and cleanliness (campaign theme) in the nation.
For ensuring the smooth functioning of this campaign, the party convened a central committee, headed by the BJP leader Avinash Rai Khanna. Apart from Khanna, Union Minister Arjun Ram Meghwal and national secretaries Sudha Yadav and Sunil Deodhar were given the responsibility to make the campaign a huge success.
