He informed the audience about the Centre’s decision to add service tax in the railways due to which coal in Gujarat would become dearer and give burden of Rs. 100 crore to the state! Shri Modi affirmed that on one hand Congress is taking money from the coal scam and now they are even taking money from making it reach the people!

Shri Modi remarked that on one hand the Government takes credit for brining in RTI but on the other hand they deny information to the people!

The Chief Minister categorically stated that more than the health of an individual the issue here is that how much money is being spent from the public exchequer on one person. He further added that he is already getting threats for raising this issue and Congress people are saying Modi needs a doctor. But, Shri Modi affirmed that the 6 crore people of Gujarat are his doctors and they are very well versed with his health. He asked the audience whether he should be scared, run away from this and stop asking the questions to which the unanimous reply was a strong “NO!”
