Shah along with party working president JP And and other prominent leaders reached AIIMS at around 8 am and swept the floors. Bharatiya Janata Party has planned week-long events, including the service week, to celebrate PM Modi’s 69th birthday this year.

As part of the service week celebrations, the party will be organising blood donation camps, free health checkup camps, distribution of food items among orphans and elderly people.

While speaking to reporters later, Shah said “BJP workers across the country will begin celebrating ‘seva saptah’ today. Our PM has dedicated his entire life to serve the nation and worked for the poor. So it is appropriate that we celebrate his birthday week as ‘seva saptah’.” The leaders also distributed sweets and fruits to the patients.
