5 hr long Gala at India Gate to mark Modi govt’s 2 yrs in power

A five-hour long jamboree will be organized at India Gate in New Delhi on Saturday evening to mark two years of the Bharatiya Janata Party-led National Democratic Alliance Government at the Centre.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi along with senior union ministers and chief ministers of all BJP ruled states will attend the event. BJP president Amit Shah will also be present.

Film personalities including Amitabh Bachchan and Anupam Kher will be grace the occasion. Several top business tycoons and foreign envoys are also expected to attend the celebrations.

Multiple security agencies have made elaborate arrangements in and around the venue to secure the VVIPs. The entire area has been cordoned off and CCTV cameras installed at vital locations.

The main attraction of the celebrations will be the mega show titled ‘Ek Nayi Subah’ (A New Dawn) and ‘Zara Muskura Do’ (Please Smile).

A small segment of the event on ‘Beti Bachao Beti Padhao’ campaign will be hosted by Amitabh Bachchan. Recently, Bachchan was criticised by the Congress for agreeing to host the event after his name appeared in the Panama Papers leaks.

Later, he clarified that he is only hosting a small segment on ‘saving the girl child’ and not the entire show. “I am the UN ambassador for girl child education. I am not hosting the two years of Modi government event. In fact, Madhavan is hosting it,” he had said.
