Various schemes and programmes, particularly Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, Digital India and Rural Electrification, will be highlighted during the show. Programmes to mark the completion of Modi government's second year in office will also be held in various other cities.

The government had formed a panel of ministers, headed by Urban Development Minister M Venkaiah Naidu and comprising Union ministers Nitin Gadkari, Piyush Goyal and Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, to supervise preparations for the show.

The panel has had extensive discussions regarding the government schemes which need to be highlighted.

Last year, the Modi government had celebrated its first year in office with a tagline 'Saal Ek, Shuruaat Anek'. The Information and Broadcasting Ministry had asked various ministries to provide details of their achievements.

BJP has also planned to hold over 200 events across the country between May 26 and June 10 to highlight the government's "successes" and Modi is likely to address rallies in different places, starting with an address in Saharanpur on May 26.
