  • PM Modi flagged off the all-electric superfast train manufactured under Make in India project

The Congress said that the prime minister should instead apologise to the youth, Dalits and other sections of the society, who were allegedly let down by his government. "They have destroyed democracy", Modi said in a broadcast message to MPs and MLAs of the BJP.

Congress communications in-charge Randeep Singh Surjewala also said the BJP-led central government should be blamed for the Parliament washout. "Today you have a government at the Centre which is working to unite the people of the country while the opposition is working to divide the people", he said. "There are elements who are anxious at the sight of improvement in the condition of the poor". They feel if the poor are strengthened, then they (opposition) will not be able to speak lies. 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. "Hundred years ago, people from across the country came to Champaran and worked under the leadership of Gandhiji", Modi said.

"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. In no time the former deputy CM and RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav jumped into the matter and quizzed the PM Modi and called it big "goof-up".

"It is because of the efforts of such wonderful people that we can hope to make India free of filth by 2019, when we shall be celebrating the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi", the prime minister said. "I congratulate the people, the "Swachhagrahis" and the State Govt for this".

Each "Swachhagrahi" was presented with a cash prize of Rs 51,000, a shawl, a memento and a certificate.

During the time span mentioned by the Prime Minister, the pictures of 6.6 lakh toilets were uploaded on the government's Management Information System (MIS), a software that stores the pictures and geographical coordinates of a particular construction so as to avoid duplication.
