Senior BJP leader LK Advani's Jan Chetna yatra entered Gujarat and chief minister Narendra Modi welcomed the yatra.
Modi will accompany Advani on his yatra. Gujarat BJP has made elaborate arrangements for the success of the yatra as it will cover Surat, Vadodara and Ahmedabad in the next two days, party spokesperson IK Jadeja said.
On Saturday, Advani's Jan Chetna Yatra entered the union territory of Daman and Diu where the senior BJP leader said that the 21st century would belong to India, if the black-money stashed in foreign banks is brought back to the country.
"There is huge amount of black money stashed in foreign banks, if that is brought to the country then the 21st century will be that of India," Advani said criticising the Central government on the issue.
"The purpose of this yatra is to make people aware of inflation and corruption," Advani said.
