The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is also celebrating 'Seva Saptah' or the service week – a seven-day long which began on September 14 to mark PM Modi's birthday.

Meanwhile, celebrations have begun all across the country. Leading personalities from different walks of life and the general public took to social media to wish the Prime Minister.
