On behalf of 69th birthday of our Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP launched Seva Saptah (Service Week) from September 14 to September 20 as a gift to PM Modi. BJP President and Union Home Minister Amit Shah inaugurated the Seva Saptah on Saturday.
Seva Saptah campaign is to encourage people to take the pledge of cleanliness and also limit the use of plastics. Water conservation is also an integral part of the campaign.
Apart from that, BJP has undertaken various other social initiatives across nations such as blood donation, eye check up and free health checkups for the needy people across the country.
