PM Narendra Modi completes 20 years in public office, events planned
Prime Minister Narendra Modi completed two decades in public office on Thursday. He became the Gujarat chief minister first on October 7, 2001, before taking over as the Prime Minister in 2014. A special drive called “Sewa Aur Samarpan Abhiyan” was launched in September on Modi’s 71st birthday to mark his 20 years in office.
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader congratulated Modi for his accomplishments over the last two decades. In a tweet, BJP chief JP Nadda said: “On completing 20 years of public service as the head of the state and central government, I would like to give my heartiest congratulations to supreme leader @narendramodi. #20YearsofSevaSamparan”.
Union home minister Amit Shah tweeted: “On completing 20 years of public service as the head of the state and central government, congratulations to @narendramodi ji. In these 20 years dedicated to poor welfare and antyodaya, Modi ji has made the impossible possible by thinking ahead. #20YearsofSevaSamparan.”
BJP workers will mark the day by cleaning the rivers and spreading awareness about Modi’s work, news agency ANI reported earlier this week.
“Prime Minster Narendra Modi has completed 20 years of his political life,” union minister for information and broadcasting Anurag Thakur said as he congratulated Modi. “He has served as chief minister, prime minister and a dedicated public servant. He is strong, resourceful and far sighted.”
It was his vision that enabled children and common people to access several services during the Covid-19 pandemic, Thakur added. “He provided 80 crore people with free ration. No other country has managed to do this. India is about reach the 100 crore mark in the Covid-19 vaccination drive… He provides visionary directions and follows up on the process, and that is why he is successful.”
