Kolkata, Feb 3: A 23-year old MCA student from Kolkata has started a 2,000 km walk from Kolkata to pray for Narendra Modi at the Hanuman temple in Parwa village in Bikaneer. He is reported to have started the journey on October 19 and walked along the National Highways to reach Durgapur last Thursday.

"I will offer prayer at the Hanuman temple in Parwa village in Bikaneer to make Narendra Modi Prime Minister. I hope Hanumanji will grant my prayer. Modiji has revived his state Gujarat in all fields starting from industry to education and he will do so for the whole country after becoming Prime Minister," said Nathani.

He further added:

"I have started walking from Kolkata on October 19 and will reach Parwa village within 45 to 50 days. My journey will take the National Highways in Bengal, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Delhi and finally Rajasthan. I have already officially informed Kolkata Police about my journey before I left the city. I have no affiliation with any political party. But I offer prayer to the Almighty for Narendra Modi. During my journey I will take night shelter in police stations in respective areas taking permission from police officers. I have also sent mails to the offices of the Director Generals of Police in Jharkhand, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh and Delhi informing them about my tour as well requesting for my security."

A resident of Kalakar Street in Burrabazar area, he is reported to have taken shelter in the Kali temple at the Durgapur police outpost on Wednesday night. "My mom and dad have given me all support for this venture. I come from a middle class family. I have a mission for doing something for the sake of my country," says he.

Studying in a private institute in Chatterjee International building at Park Street, Nathani also owns a computer-training centre at Burrabazar, states a report by the Hindustan Times.
