Assam health minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Saturday morning donated blood at Guwahati Medical College & Hospital as a part of state government’s initiatives to observe ‘seva saptah’ (service week).

After donating blood the minister took to his twitter handle and said, “Books & blood should be donated generously. One powers knowledge, other life!”

“To observe seva saptah as part of PM Sri @narendramodi’s birthday celebrations, I am humbled to donate blood at Guwahati Medical College & Hospital this morning, Sept 14,” he further tweeted.


The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Thursday said that it will observe a ‘Seva Saptah‘ (service week) starting from Saturday to Friday (September 20) for Prime Minister Narendra Modi‘s birthday on September 17.

Innumerable social initiatives have been planned across the nation by the BJP members in the week.

“If there is anybody who can solve problems faced by the poor people in the country, it is Narendra Modi,” BJP national general secretary Arun Singh said on Friday.

“Therefore, on September 17, which is Narendra Modi’s birthday, the BJP has decided to celebrate Sept 14-20 as ‘seva saptah’,” Singh added.
