She said the programme, which has been named 'Making of Developed India' or 'Modifest', would be kicked off by Prime Minister Modi from Guwahati in Assam on 26 May.

According to the BJP, events across the country would also be addressed by Union Ministers, parliamentarians, BJP chief ministers, state ministers and several senior party leaders.

Irani said a 'Jan Ki Baat' programme has also been arranged so that the people can share their messages with the Prime Minister directly.

"A 'Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas' programme would also be held where the beneficiaries of the government's several schemes would participate," Irani said.

Senior BJP leader Arun Singh, who was present at the conference, said that several senior leaders of the party would attend the programmes.

"The party has also organised intellectual summits in the cities in which the party's ministers would participate and interact with the people," he said, adding that a programme on Swacch Bharat Abhiyan has also been decided at every venue.

Singh said BJP President Amit Shah would attend the programme between 2-4 June in Kerala, on 6 June in Port Blair in Andaman and Nicobar Islands, from June 8 to 10 in Chhattisgarh, and from 12-13 June in Arunachal Pradesh.

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh will attend the 'Modifest' in Jaipur and Mumbai, while External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj would attend the programmes in Delhi and Lucknow, he said.

Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley would attend 'Modifest' in Bengaluru and Ahmedabad, Urban Development Minister M Venkaiah Naidu will go to Bhubaneswar and Chhattisgarh, while Railways Minister Suresh Prabhu would participate in the events in West Bengal and Madhya Pradesh.
