In order to mark two years in power, the NDA government is holding a number of events across the country.
A total of 33 teams comprising Union ministers and BJP leaders have spread across the country to helm the Vikas Parv programmes - scheduled to be held from 26 May to 15 June in a number of cities.
Speaking at the New Delhi Vikas Parv on 27 May, BJP chief Amit Shah lauded the achievements of the government at the centre.
He said that the government had helped to ensure that the world has accepted that the "21st century belongs to India". "Our ministers have left no stone unturned in providing people friendly and a corruption-free government, that will take India to newer heights," Shah said.
"We have been successful on every front, and much more work will be done in the next three years," the BJP chief said, adding, "The previous governments had constantly been involved in baseless arguments and tiffs, Modi government has put an end to that."
He also spoke at length about a number of issues - including the recent assembly polls, the upcoming assembly elections in UP and his party colleague Subramanian Swamy. Here are excerpts from the joint interview at the event:
On BJP's achievements
"The government has done a commendable job in these two years. The Jan Dhan Yojana is government's biggest milestone in the two years of regime. As far as political achievements are concerned, we did a tremendous job in Kerala by achieving 15% of the vote share."
On Indian economy
"The Modi government gave hope to the country after the policy paralysis and dispirited bureaucracy which the UPA left the country with. The government revived India's economy when the world wrote us off. We have done a lot of work in the last two year but a lot has to be done in the next three years."
"Our ministers have left no stone unturned in providing people a friendly and corruption-free government that will take India to newer heights. The previous governments had constantly been involved in baseless arguments and tiffs, Modi government has put an end to that."
On Subramanian Swamy
"Do not relate Swamy to BJP. It is Swamy who speaks not the BJP."
