Highlighting the ethos of Sadbhavana (unity and brotherhood), he said that the root of all developments in Gujarat was unity and love. In his speech on Sunday, he said, "In 1985, an atmosphere of hatred had spread. Stabbing and arsoning had become a norm. But then Gujaratis learnt the value of peace. At that time, before a newborn learnt the word 'maa", it learnt to say 'curfew and police". Today, even an eight-year old does not know what curfew, lathicharge or teargas is."
Modi commented that Dwaraka was the perfect place to kickstart the second leg of his mission and quoting mythology stated that this was the very place where Adi Sankrachaya established peace between the at-war Shaivites and Vaishnavs.
After the anti-Modi tirade launched by IPS officer Sanjeev Bhatt and those supporting him, Modi called the Sadbhavana fast a mission to stop the 'defamation propaganda" against Gujarat. He added, "I have nothing to demand. All I want is to send a message to every nook and corner of Hindustan that Gujarat defamation should come to end."
Giving full credit to the spirit of the Sadbhavana for the development in Gujarat, he stated, "Development can happen only when people join hands and this is what has happened in Gujarat."
The rally on Sunday was attended by top local leaders like Sankracharya representative Naraynand Brahmchari, Swaminarayan Mandri Kothari Swami, Bhanwad Peer Saidye Bapu, Rasool Miyan Jusab Miyan of Aasaba Peer and Salaya Maulvi Bachumiyan Ahmedmiyan.
