Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi will take the Sadbhavana Mission forward on Sunday with a day-long fast at Lord Krishna's dwelling place, Dwarka Jamnagar District.
Phase two of the fast will be visibly different from the first one spanning over three days beginning his birthday on September 17.
On Sunday, around 8,000 people are expected to fast with Modi, unlike the Ahmedabad one where the CM went on fast alone.
As per Latest Saurabh Patel Interviews, who is the in-charge minister of Jamnagar district, told to media that, “These people who will fast with the CM are from the talukas. Besides, around 40,000 people are expected to come to greet the CM.”'
Narendra Modi will begun his fast at 10 am with prayers and end at 6 pm.
In the first half of the day, he will meet leaders of different religious and social groups, and in second half, he will meet some individuals and groups.
Around 10 ministers, mostly belonging to the Saurashtra region — Vajubhai Vala, Dilip Sanghani, Ramanlal Vora, Mohan Kundariya, Vasuben Trivedi, Saurabh Patel and others — will participate in the fast.
All the Jamnagar and Saurashtra region MLAs and many MPs will also participate in the event while the party office-bearers will also join in large numbers.
Gujarat State Road Transport Service Corporation has allotted 300 buses to ferry Modi's supporters from different talukas and villages. This, however, gas caused problems for many local commuters due to cancellation of the bus services.
Modi will conduct fasts in 26 districts and six major cities — Ahmedabad, Vadodara, Rajkot, Surat, Junagadh and Mehsana.
His three-day fast in Ahmedabad had received a lot of national attention with several senior party leaders, including L K Advani and Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj, and Arun Jaitley, visiting him.
