New Delhi: The staff and patients at AIIMS in Delhi were in for a spectacle as Home Minister Amit Shah was on Saturday seen sweeping the floors of the hospital kicking off the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) ‘Seva Saptah’ campaign.

As a part of the celebrations for Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his birthday week, several BJP leaders including working president JP Nadda, senior party leader Vijay Goel and Vijender Gupta took the initiative and swept the floors at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s birthday is on Tuesday, September 17.

Addressing the media after cleaning the floors, Shah said, “BJP workers across the country will begin celebrating ‘Seva Saptah’ today. Our PM has dedicated his entire life to serving the nation and has worked for the poor. So, it is appropriate that we celebrate his birthday week as ‘Seva Saptah’.”

Further, urging people to take conscious steps towards sustainability, he said in tweet, “I appeal to the citizens that in this ‘Seva Saptah’ which will run from September 14 to 20, the people of the country should take the pledge of cleanliness, shunning the use of single-use plastic and water conservation. They should also take a pledge to take these messages to the people of the country”

The BJP leaders also visited and distributed fruits to the patients at the hospital. Shah also asked the BJP workers to make similar efforts and visit the poor across the country highlighting the Centre’s work towards them.

The ‘Seva Saptah’ campaign will go on from September 14 to September 20 and the party will undertake several social initiatives across the country. Exhibitions will be conducted at every district, showcasing the social work done by PM Modi.

The BJP cadres will also be organizing blood donation camps, checkup camps, and distribute food items among orphans and elderly people.
