His reaction came after it was reported that supporters of Modi in Rajkot in his home state Gujarat have built a temple for him. The temple, with a bust of Modi in the sanctum, stands on Kothariya road and is planned to be inaugurated on February 16.
If you have time & resources, please devote the same towards fulfilling our dream of a Clean India.
