As the Narendra Modi-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government is set to complete four years in office on 26 May, a committee set up by the Prime Minister’s Office has finalised a plan to project the government’s achievements in the last four years, reported NDTV.

In the run-up to the 2019 elections, the theme would be to compare the work done by the Narendra Modi government in the last 48 months versus the work done by the Congress government in the last 48 years.

According to NDTV, the government’s achievement of providing electricity to 18,000 villages will be projected as a major milestone. Under the Saubhagya scheme, the government plans to provide electricity to all households by the end of this year. 

The government is also likely to put out the number of jobs it has created in the last four years and speak of the speedy delivery of schemes that it has ensured. It is likely to compare the figures with that of the Congress government to draw parallels.

Another initiative that the government is also likely to talk about is the free cooking gas connection to families.

Plans have been made, both at the national and state level, for celebration of the four-year anniversary. According to NDTV, all BJP ministries will hold press conferences and public assemblies to enlist their achievements in their four years of governance.
