The NDA government is all geared up for its 20 days celebration starting from 26 May, of MODI-Fest, on the completion of three years rule at the centre. Around 900 destinations across the country will be visited by BJP Ministers, MPs, MLAs and office bearers. The main agenda of this programme is to educate the people about the achievements of the government in past three years and to reach out to local public. BJP will be majorly focusing on its weak states, Bengal, Kerela and Odisha.
Chief ministers, more than five Union ministers and central office-bearers will be attending programmes in these three states. Though, BJP has managed to open its account in Kerela assembly, emerging as the main opposition in Bengal and is the main challenger to Naveen Patnaik’s BJD in Odisha, it has a long way to go before hoping to form a government in these states. Keeping in mind the aim to buildup BJP in these states, Amit Shah and his team have decided to host a sizable number of programmes here. More than 60 events are organised in Bengal alone.
Chhattisgarh CM Raman Singh will be in Asansol and Jharkhand CM Raghubar Das in Durgapur during the celebrations in Bengal. Textile minister Smriti Irani, parliamentary affairs minister Ananth Kumar, railway minister Suresh Prabhu, rural development minister Narendra Singh Tomar and minister of state for finance Santosh Gangwar will also visit Bengal during the celebration.
