New Delhi: The Narendra Modi government has completed four years in office. To mark the fourth anniversary, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will launch a fortnight-long programme, with its president Amit Shah leading an exercise to reach out to one lakh personalities from different walks of life to highlight its success story.
The programme will start on May 27, in which all ministers, both from the Centre and BJP-ruled states, MPs, MLAs, mayors and all other office-bearers of the party will reach out to experts or influential people across the country, BJP general secretary Arun Singh said in a letter. It will include a special contact drive in SC and ST localities and also with senior citizens, he said.
PM Modi on Saturday hailed good governance as an all-round development for the country on the occasion of the fourth anniversary of the BJP-led government at the Centre. In a series of tweets, the PM underscored that development has become a mass movement for citizens of the country in the last four years.
On this day in 2014, we began our journey of working towards India’s transformation.
Over the last four years, development has become a vibrant mass movement, with every citizen feeling involved in India’s growth trajectory. 125 crore Indians are taking India to great heights!

Press conferences will be held in 20 different cities, including the capital, by senior party leaders such as Ghulam Nabi Azad, Ashok Gehlot and Randeep Surjewala.
