Prime Minister Narendra Modi turns 71 on Friday and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has drawn plans to make the day historic. While the party aims to create a record of maximum COVID-19 vaccine inoculations, it will also embark on 21-day “Seva and Samarpan” campaign.

Apart from cleanliness, Atmanirbhar and various other drives, this year PM Modi’s birthday will begin with an aim to create a record of maximum COVID-19 vaccine inoculations. Meanwhile, Prime Minister’s this year birthday is additionally significant as he is going to complete 20 years in public office on October 7. President Ram Nath Kovind, Union ministers Amit Shah, Rajnath Singh and Nirmala Sitharaman greeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi on his birthday on Friday. PM Modi is into the third year of his second consecutive term as Prime Minister and has repeatedly emphasised the motto of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas’ in governance. He has sought to usher inclusive, development-oriented and corruption-free governance and also sought to bring speed in decision-making. PM Modi was sworn-in for his second term on May 2019 after serving as the Prime Minister of India from 2014 to 2019. He is the first Prime Minister to be born after Independence.

The longest-serving Chief Minister of Gujarat (October 2001 to May 2014) PM Modi drove BJP to win against Congress with his promises of corruption-free governance. While securing a full majority in 2014 and 2019, the PM Modi-led BJP has taken several welfare initiatives. He will achieve another milestone next month as he completes 20 years in public office on October 7.
