The BJP has planned around 200 rallies, 200 press conferences and 5,000 public meetings across the country to highlight government's achievements. It has issued two slogans 'Varsh Ek Kaam Anek' and 'Modi Sarkaar Kaam Lagataar' which will be used during the celebrations to commemorate the completion its first year in office.

Modi took over as the Prime Minister of India on May 26, 2014.
