Prime Minister Narendra Modi commenced the Jan Kalyan Parv campaign or People’s Welfare Festival in a rally to mark one year of the NDA government’s rule, in Mathura in Uttar Pradesh on Monday. The Jan Kalyan Parv is a week-long campaign focusing on public welfare schemes.

Speaking at the rally, Modi said that BJP has done many developmental works in its one year of governance.

During its future rallies to celebrate its one year in governance, BJP aims to counter a flood of charges against the government that it is ‘pro-corporate’ and ‘anti-poor.’ The party plans to hold to 200 rallies and press conferences to convey to people about the government’s initiatives.

Earlier, the Prime Minister paid tribute to Deen Dayal Upadhyaya, a leader of Bharatiya Jana Sangh, from which BJP was formed at Deen Dayal Dham .

“Deen Dayal Upadhyaya was a major contributor to maturity of the Indian politics,” Modi said while speaking on the occasion.
