Bhubaneswar: Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan on Saturday claimed that poor people of the country ever since Independence have benefitted the most during the Narendra Modi Government.
He said this after inaugurating the BJP’s State-level ‘Seva Saptah’ (Service Week) at Bharatpur here. The party is holding the programme to mark the birth week of Prime Minister Modi from September 14 to 20.
On the occasion, a blood donation camp, a free health checkup camp and distribution of equipments to physically-challenged persons were held.
Pradhan said creating awareness for water conservation and banning of single-use plastic would be the best gift for Modi on his birthday.
He said the BJP has initiated the Seva Saptah campaign to inspire people to follow the ideals of Modi on his 69th birthday on September 17.
He said blood donation camps and free health checkup camps would be organised at all gram panchayats during the week. He called upon people to observe the occasion as a social programme.
