This Is Modi's Fresh Bid To Engage People After Completing 3 Years In Office

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will complete three years in office on May 26, 2017. In last three years, Modi government launched several initiatives which made an impact. The Clean India Mission and his famous radio talk show, 'Mann Ki Baat', where he addresses the nation every month on different issues, are some examples. As the BJP-led government completes three years of its functioning, the Bharatiya Janta Party has prepared a 20-day programme, which will begin from  May 26. This 20-day programme is named as MODI, which stands for Making Of Developed India. Under MODI, a new program named 'Jann Ki Baat' will be featured, where PM Modi will take feedback from people on the impact of government's programmes, policies, and schemes. The Prime Minister and the BJP had launched similar initiatives before to gauge people's aspirations and expectations from the government. The government amended policies from time to time based on these reactions. This is another bid to achieve the same.
