 The BJP will sell what sells the most — Narendra Modi.

A fest named after the Prime Minister is planned across the country to showcase his achievements of the past three years. Modi completes three years in power on May 26 and the fest will be launched on the same day. It will continue till June 15.

“Modi fest will be organised in 120-odd cities,” a BJP leader said. “The event will highlight how he changed India and brought it out from a state of despair.”

Surgical strikes in PoK, demonetisation and other such decisions of the government are likely to figure prominently in the programme.

The celebration will not only mark the third anniversary, but also start preparation for the 2019 general election. Sources said Modi will use social media and other communication methods to connect with the electorate and thank them for their “unflinching support”.

His ministerial colleagues, MPs and party leaders will be deployed to make the celebration a success. BJP leaders plan to establish contact with voters in over 300 of 707 districts.  

The PM will address a rally at Guwahati in Assam on May 26. The BJP government in Assam also completes its first year on May 24. Meanwhile, BJP chief Amit Shah will start his three-day tour to Lakshadweep from Tuesday to reach out to voters.

With less than 50,000 voters, Lakshadweep is the smallest parliamentary constituency in terms of electorate.
