Vaghela ends his fast

VaghelaAhemdabad: The 74 hour “satyagrah” fast of state Congress leaders Shankarsinh Vaghela and Arjun Modhwadia came to an end today. Vaghela ended his fast on a pavement outside Sabarmati ashram here Tuesday by drinking lemon juice given by two Dalit girls.

“We fasted to draw the attention of the people of Gujarat to what was being done on their own soil by people elected by them to provide a neat and clean administration. Also as to how the ruling dispensation had betrayed their trust – and this purpose we have achieved,” he added.

Vaghela launched his fast at Sabarmati Asharam on Saturday to counter Narendra Modi’s ‘Sadbhavana Mission’ The fast was a protest against the corruption and maladministration of the Modi government and not a carnival for leaders like the government worthies, said Vaghela pointing out that “we could also have invited our party national top brass”.
