PM Modi on his 72nd birthday today is set to participate in four events focused on the development of various sectors.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is celebrating his 72nd birthday with a jam-packed schedule today 17th September. He is going to launch a wide variety of projects in various sectors for the growth and development of the nation.

Today, PM Modi is not going to celebrate his birthday with an elaborate function or party, but he is going to give some important speeches at four different events on topics covering wildlife and the environment, women’s empowerment, skills development, youth, and also GDP and logistics. 

The most important project of all that he’s going to launch today is releasing the eight cheetahs into the wild that he’s brought from Namibia. It is going to be a historic event for the wildlife of the country as cheetahs are being introduced to India after a period of 70 years of their extinction here.

After releasing the cheetahs in the national park, PM will participate in the first-ever convocation of students of ITIs, a self-help group Sammelan at Karahal in Sheopur, and the event to launch the National Logistics Policy.
