The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is all set to celebrate former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s birthday in a grand manner today, December 25. To mark the 99th birth anniversary of Atal Bihari Vajpayee, BJP is set to organise several events across the country. Vajpayee was born on December 25, 1924, in Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh, and was elected three times as the nation's prime minister.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday paid tributes to former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee on his 99th birth anniversary, saying he worked to speed up the country's development all his life.

Modi, along with President Droupadi Murmu, her predecessor Ram Nath Kovind, Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla, and several ministers paid tributes to the BJP stalwart at his memorial 'Sadaiv Atal' here.

BJP national president JP Nadda has asked party officials and state presidents across the country to pay floral tributes to Atal Bihari Vajpayee's portrait at all booths and discuss the wonderful personality and work of the former Prime Minister.

To pay tribute to Vajpayee's poetry, creative programmes will be organised at every booth. Vajpayee's birth anniversary is one of the six booth-level programmes run by the party.

At every booth, there would be a discussion about the government's schemes, achievements, and good governance among the beneficiaries.

In every district, there would be a discussion on the schemes and achievements of the Central Government, the BJP-ruled state governments, as well as good governance for the welfare of the poor.

Good Governance Day

December 25 is also celebrated as Good Governance Day.

The purpose of Good Governance Day is to increase public access to various government programmes and services through good governance. The day is celebrated to make sure that the country's residents are treated fairly by the government and that they receive the advantages of various government services.
