SansadTV Bureau

BJP-genThe BJP-led NDA government has grand plans to celebrate its two years in power. While the party workers have been asked to gear up for 21-day long ‘Vikas Parv’, to be held from May 26 to June 15, it has identified 200 “nerve centres” across the country to highlight the achievements of the government.

According to the reports, 33 teams, each comprising of one Cabinet Minister, one Minister of State (MoS) along with a national and state-level party functionary will visit 6-7 identified nerve centres to highlight the achievements of the government during the ‘vikas parv’.

An internal note had also been sent to all the ministers and department heads seeking to highlight the achievements of Modi government in the last years.

“It is also important to emphasise the obstruction by Opposition in not passing important legislations and creating hurdles in the path of development so that general public take note of achievements of government,” states the internal note.

The Modi government would complete two years in office on May 26, after BJP was voted to power with a massive mandate in 2014 general elections.
