New Delhi, May 20: Celebrations to commemorate the completion of first year of NDA Government would commence from the native village of Jan Sangh leader Deendayal Upadhyay on May 25 with a public rally of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
But alongwith this, the opposition Congress is alos planning something as a counter campaign. As per an NDTV report, "Congress will today carpet bomb the ruling BJP with 24 press conferences across the country, as it builds a counter-campaign against the Narendra Modi government, which is planning a mega celebration to mark one year in office."
Modi will address the rally at village Nagla Chandrabhan in Mathura of Uttar Pradesh, which is Upadhyay's birth place.
BJP sources said this will be the first of a series of public rallies being organised by BJP across the country during the week long celebrations from May 26 to 31 that will be addressed by various leaders.
The party and government will commemorate the completion of one year of its government as 'Jan Kalyan Parv' celebrations.
Union ministers and BJP MPs and functionaries will fan out across the country to tell people about the welfare measures taken for the underprivileged sections and farmers as part of a week-long 'Jan Kalyan Parv' which the party has lined up to mark the NDA government's completion of one year in office.
Meanwhile, party leaders in Mathura are expecting declaration of a few welfare schemes on the occasion by Modi, that would be a befitting tribute to Upadhyay.
