Congress Terms Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Fast a 'Farce'

Meanwhile, reports have said that Modi will go about with his daily routine as the PM of India. Now the culture of stopping files is not there. The BJP didn't allow the parliament, the temple of democracy, to function when they were in the opposition and neither are they allowing it to function now when they are in power.

"They can not see the poor getting empowered. They will not be able to fool them", he said.

The Prime Minister's office has asked all ministers to enlist their achievements and compare them with promises made by the BJP in its 2014 Lok Sabha manifesto.

"But I will laud Nitish ji for his patience and good governance and the way he is fighting anti-social elements, it is not easy", he said.

He added that the government is well acquainted with the way the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan has changed the lives of millions in the country.

The sanitation coverage in Bihar, in other words the number of households having a toilet, is at 52 per cent, way behind the national average of 80 per cent.

Modi also awarded Swachhagrahis, or cleanliness ambassadors, Rs 51,000 each for cleaning their localities and neighbourhoods. Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman will observe the fast in Chennai, Human Resource Development Minister Prakash Javdekar in Benguluru, Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Vijay Goel in Tamil Nadu, and Minister of State for External Affairs MJ Akbar in Vidisha, Madhya Pradesh. Mahatma Gandhi launched the Champaran Satyagrah on April 10, 1917 against the British to fight for the rights of farmers who were forced to undertake indigo cultivation. He also recalled that the State had "showed the way to the entire nation" on three occasions - the Champaran Satyagraha movement of Mahatma Gandhi, the Bhoodan movement of Acharya Vinoba Bhave and the valiant and successful fight against the Emergency, led by Jayaprakash Narayan.
