Congress workers protest against four years of Modi government in Delhi.
As BJP-led central government completed four years in office today, Prime Minister Narendra Modi this morning tweeted that the "support and affection (of the people of this country) is the biggest source of motivation and strength for the entire government".
Stressing that every Indian has been involved in the trajectory of the development, PM Modi asserted that "125 crore Indians are taking India to great heights!". In the run up to 2019 Lok Sabha elections, however, the Congress on the fourth anniversary of the Modi government is observing 'Vishwasghat Diwas' (the day of betrayal) accusing the ruling party of not fulfilling the voters' promises.
Here are the live updates on the fourth anniversary of PM Modi-led central government:
