Chennai: On September 17, the birthday of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, many events are going to be held across the country. Somewhere blood donation will be organized and somewhere service fortnight will be run. But something different is being done in Tamil Nadu. Here on September 17, the state unit of the Bharatiya Janata Party will give gold rings to newborn children. The children who are born on this day will be given a ring of about 2 grams.

Along with this 720 kg of fish will also be distributed. “We have chosen the Government RSRM Hospital in Chennai where all children born on PM Modi’s birthday will be given gold rings,” said L Murugan, Minister of State for Fisheries and Information and Broadcasting.

Each ring will be of around 2 grams of gold, which can cost around Rs 5000. He said that this is not Rewari given free of cost. Rather, through this we want to welcome those born on the birthday of the Prime Minister. BJP’s local unit estimates that 10-15 babies can be born in this hospital on September 17.

According to a three-page letter sent out by the party’s national president Arun Singh, all the states have been asked to mark the occasion as ‘Sewa Pakhwada’, similar to programmes organised in previous years. Under it, the activities involve blood donation and medical check up camps among others. The party leadership had strictly asked for no cakes to be cut or havans to be organised.
