Hazare, recently in a media conference stated, "State chief ministers must learn from the work done by the chief ministers of Gujarat and Bihar." Showing his respect to the 72-year-old social-activist, Modi on Monday, Apr 11 has written an open letter to Hazare.
In his letter to Hazare, Modi expressed his concern for the crusader and remembered the dire consequences of some persons for praising Modi and his state. Modi feared, "whosoever talks good of Gujarat he or she will be subjected to the vilification campaign."
Amitabh Bachchan, who worked free for Gujarat Tourism, was attacked by a group of inimical forces, Modi mentioned in his letter and also mentioned, "They spread falsehoods against Bachchan so as to snap his old ties with Gujarat. At a public function in Mumbai where Bachchan was invited this group had stopped him from entering." (Read: Modi dubs those against Big B as 'Taliban')
