Prime Minster Modi will also lay the foundation stone in Chotila for six-laning of 201-kilometer Ahmedabad-Rajkot section of NH-47 at a cost of Rs. 2,893 crore. We had said we will study all aspects relating to GST for three months, including shortcomings.

Later in the day, Mr Modi laid the foundation stone for a four-lane cable stayed signature bridge between Okha and Beyt Dwarka and talked about the small trader-friendly decisions taken by the GST Council on Friday evening, ushering in a virtual "early Diwali" for citizens.

Prime Minister Modi took to Twitter and wrote, "I look forward to visiting Vadnagar, my hometown tomorrow morning".

Lack of infrastructure meant transportation was tough, people faced difficulties if an emergency came up.

The party also alleged that high employment-generating sectors such as agriculture and textiles too have got little tax relief and the common man is burdened with very heavy taxes on items of daily use.

On Sunday, he will give his birth city Vadnagar a visit for the first time since becoming Prime Minister in 2014.

It will provide greater focus on urban areas and other pockets of low immunisation coverage. A public rally at the pilgrim town of Chotila in Surendranagar district, just an hour's drive from Rajkot, would also be addressed by Modi. This is because we devoted resources to improve the port.
