Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi continued to get an unprecedented response on the second day of his three-day fast for his Sadbhavna Mission with people from all sections of society and all walks of life virtually making a beeline to the venue at Gujarat University Convention Centre here today.
They included national, state and local leaders, young and old, men and women, eunuchs, jean clad urban youth, farmers, tribal, maldharis, many in their traditional attire, individually and in groups, each representing their nativity, showing their solidarity with the Chief Minister on his mission.
They included people belonging to different religious groups, Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Bohras and Jains, some shouting slogans like ‘Bharat Mata-ki Jai’.
It appeared as if all roads lead to the University Ground. Often, the crowd eager to meet their favorite leader on the dais posed a tough time for the security people control the rush. The event kept busy the TV crew which converged from the Metros and other centers not to miss a moment.
The event provided fast business for makeshift tea-stalls, food joints dishing out local cuisines like ‘fadda-jalebi’ and restaurateurs serving sophisticated menus, forcing many to requisition fresh orders by the afternoon.
