They also added that as directed by prime minister, the BJP MPs will also organise events to mark the birth anniversary of Dalit icon Bhimrao Ambedkar on April 14.

Without naming any political party, Modi said there are people who don't want any improvement in the condition of the poor as they feel it would become hard to mislead financially weaker sections if the government succeeds in its efforts to uplift the poor. 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 killed democracy & we will observe fast to bring their crime in front of the world. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, along with BJP President Amit Shah and all the BJP MPs, will be observing a one day hunger strike on April 12.

The Prime Minister also praised the Bihar government under chief minister Nitish Kumar and said the state government would never compromise on corruption and would continue making honest efforts for the betterment of the people. The PM will fast in the national capital, while Amit Shah will fast in Hubli, Karnataka. "This version was prepared before Prime Minister Modi's fast was announced", a PMO source said.

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.
