There are 35 crore beneficiaries of Jan Dhan bank accounts, seven crore under Mudra and over six crore under Ujjwala scheme to give free LPG connection to the poor and we will reach to every house to get their support, he said.

He also said, “Main desh bhar mein ghuumta hoon. North-East se lekar Kanyakumari tak aur Assam se lekar Gujarat tak, desh ki janata Narendra Modi ji ke sath chhattan ki tarah khadhi hai. Jan samarthan logon ki aankhon mein dikhai padta hai.”
Shri Shah also made an appeal to the people of Gujarat to bless PM Shri Narendra Modi by giving 26 out of 26 seats to BJP again with an increased margin this time.
