Asked about the BJP's "Seva Saptah" initiative, Shah told media Modi had dedicated his life to serving the country, especially the poor and farmers, so it is appropriate to celebrate his birthday by taking part in various activities aimed at serving the society, be it planting trees, undertaking cleanliness drive or working to make the country single-use plastic free.

The exercise which started on Saturday morning will end on September 20. Shah, who is also the BJP president, called upon the party workers to reach out to the poor to serve them. Governments at all the BJP-ruled states will also join the exercise aimed at serving the people.

In a tweet, Shah also appealed to people to spread the message for water conservation, ridding the country of single-use plastic and cleanliness everywhere.

The BJP has been celebrating Modi's birthday in a similar manner since he took charge as the prime minister of India in 2014. This year, Modi will celebrate his 69th birthday, a day which he generally spends among children in his parliamentary constituency of Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh.
