New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday met his senior ministerial colleagues to discuss programmes to celebrate first anniversary of his government.

During the meeting, the prime minister told the ministers to spread the message about the work done by the government during the last one year, particularly highlighting the initiatives in the social sector.
He also reportedly told the ministers to fan out across the country to advertise the NDA government’s achievements in one year vis-a-vis those of the UPA government in 10 years.
The government will also publish a booklet detailing the government’s achievements.
Celebrations to commemorate the completion of first year of NDA Government would commence from the native village of Jan Sangh leader Deen Dayal Upadhyay on May 25 with a public rally of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
