PM Modi’s birthday: Cheetahs, 56-inch thali, 72-kg cake and many more

Ahmedabad, 17/9: As Prime Minister Narendra Modi releases three of the eight cheetahs from Namibia into Madhya Pradesh’s Kuno National Park on Saturday, BJP-run governments, party leaders and workers will organise several events across the country to mark his 72nd birthday.

The party’s Tamil Nadu unit has identified a Chennai hospital where it will give gold rings to all children born on the PM’s birthday. The Vanzara Samaj in Gujarat will light 72,000 earthen lamps in the shape of Modi’s face, plant 72 trees and collect 72 bottles of blood. The BJP will organise “unity in diversity” festivals, a blood donation drive, tree-planting and a cleanliness drive across the country from Saturday to October 2.


But if it is a race to pay obeisance to Modi’s personality cult, former BJP Rajya Sabha MP Vijay Goel has shown feline swiftness. He has plans to cut a 72 kg cake on Saturday. On the PM’s birthday eve, Goel put up a “wall of greetings” outside one of the gates of the national capital’s Rajiv Chowk metro station in Connaught Place.
