Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Monday visited Meldi Mata’s temple in Sanand. Shah is on a two-day visit to Gujarat. He visited the temple with Gujarat’s health minister Rushikesh Patel–together they took blessings of the goddess on the first day of Navratri. Today Shah inaugurated the Bhadaj Bridge in Ahmedabad in presence of Gujarat Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel. He will also attend a farmers’ conference at Bavla in the Ahmedabad district.
This visit comes after Shah was in Bihar for the first time since the alliance between the Bharatiya Janata Party and Janata Dal-United ended leading to the Mahagathbandhan rule.
After inaugurating the overbridge on SP Ring Road, he also unveiled a primary health centre at Sanand and an office of the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation.

Farmers from Amit Shah’s Gandhinagar parliamentary constituency are organising the “Rin Sweekar Sammelan” (gratitude acceptance conference) to express gratitude for providing irrigation facilities in 164 villages.
