Around 8,000 policemen will be on duty during the day. The Rajkot city police commissioner Anupam Singh Gehlot said. “Due to the PM’s visit, we have prohibited parking on either side of the roads on which his convoy will pass. Similarly, some roads have been declared one-way due to VVIP movement.”

According to reports by PTI,  Modi on Friday will attend a programme to dedicate water supply schemes based on Vatrak, Mazum and Meswo Dams at Modasa in Aravalli district in north Gujarat. He will inaugurate two water supply projects worth Rs 552 crore for the region and address a large gathering at the venue.

              There is a need of religious tolerance in India. There is a need of harsh laws to nab and punish culprits that dare to harass girls and women.There is a need of enforcing the democratic value and secularism in the country.Of course, all the killing are not the outcome of religious intolerance.There are personal reasons behind some murders.But, few murders occurred up till now are for religious intolerance- this trend must be stopped. Prime Minister must pay attention to evils that are prevailing in our country.Besides a high economic growth,democracy and secularism only save India. Our PM must listen to it.
