Modi, who is staying at the Raj Bhavan in Gandhinagar, is expected to travel to Pavagadh in Panchmahal district for inaugurating the redeveloped Kalika Mata temple, and then head to Vadodara for inauguration and laying the foundation of several projects under the “Gujarat Gaurav Abhiyan”.

A celebration has also been organised at PM Modi’s hometown Vadnagar in Mehsana in the evening for Hiraba’s birthday.

The Prime Minister reached Ahmedabad on Friday evening.

Modi’s brother Prahlad Modi had told The Indian Express earlier, “As Hiraba is turning 100 years old, we have organised a Nav Chandi Yagna and recitation of Sundar Kand at Hatkeshwar Temple in Vadnagar. A Sangeet Sandhya has also been organised at the temple on the occasion.” Whether Hiraba would go to Vadnagar would depend on her health, he had said.
