Meanwhile, the Bharatiya Janata Party is observing ‘Seva Diwas‘ to mark the occasion.
Narendra Modi became the Prime Minister of India on May 26, 2014 after the BJP won the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.
Having visited close to 50 countries in three years of his tenure, the Prime Minister’s foreign policies have also garnered much attention.
Another mission of his that garnered attention from his allies and opposing parties alike was the ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan‘, under which he has been urging the countrymen to keep the nation clean. He appointed several ambassadors, hailing from various walks of the society, for the mission as well.
The BJP, under Prime Minister Modi’s leadership, has already started its preparations for the general elections in 2019, in a bid to lengthen its tenure as the ruling party in India.
