Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said whenever his party got the chance to serve the nation, it did so by emphasising "good governance and empowerment of the poor".
PM Modi on Monday took to Twitter and posted on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the Bharatiya Janata Party, reported Hindustan Times.
"We mark our Party's 40th Anniversary when India is battling COVID-19. I appeal to BJP Karyakartas to follow the set of guidelines from our Party President @JPNaddavJi, help those in need and reaffirm the importance of social distancing. Let's make India COVID-19 free," the Prime Minister tweeted.
"In line with the principles of the party, our workers have toiled to bring positive changes in the lives of the people and also set a new example of social service," PM's post read.
PM Modi extended his wishes and greetings to BJP workers across the nation and thanked them for working hard for the party's cause.
The Prime Minister also extended greetings on the occasion of Mahavir Jayanti.
"Happy Mahavir Jayanti to all countrymen. His life based on truth, non-violence, renunciation and austerity will always remain an inspiration for everyone," PM Modi posted.
This comes a day after the nation carried out the Prime Minister's call to light diyas and candles in their houses at 9 pm for 9 minutes in solidarity amid the coronavirus crisis. Scores of people switched off their residential lights to stand in unity against the coronavirus pandemic.
The number of Covid-19 in the country has crossed the 3,500 mark. India entered the 13th day of the 21-day lockdown on Monday which will end on April 14.
