The BIS CM was in Visnagar of Mehsana district on the occasion of the Bhandara Mahotsav (communal kitchen) after the death of a religious guru from Nath Sampraday here - Sant Gulabnath. Adityanath also belongs to the sect and is ‘Gurubhai (student of the same mentor)’ from Gulabnath who came from a Muslim family who before adopting ‘sanyas (renunciation of the world).’

Speaking about the opportunity that was attended by hundreds of ‘sadhus’ from different parts of the country, Adityanath said, “Aaj Bharat duniya ki ubharati hui sab se badi arth vyavastha ke rup me ubharkar aage badh raha hain. Kya hame gaurav ki anubhuti nahi honi chahiye? Kya hamari jati hamesha hamari suraksha kar payegi? Agar ham jatiy adhar par nahi bate hote zu kya Somnath ka mandir kabhi tut pata?… Magar tuta hamari kamio se, ekta ka abhav, jatiyo ke ahdar par bata hona… chuaachhut aur asprushyata ke adhar par bata hona… (Today, India is in Movement as one of the world's largest developing economies. Shouldn't we be proud? Can our caste always protect us? If we don't split up on the caste lines, Somnath Temple has not been demolished. It has been demolished because of our vices, through lack of unity , by division on caste lines and untouchability ...) ”

“… Jab tak is Bharatiya samaj me chhuachhut aur asprushyata rahegi, ham apne ujjwal” bhavishya ki kamna nahi kar sakte… (which We do not dream for our better future until untouchability remains in Indian society…), ”Adityanath added.

The BIS CM asked the religious leaders to take the lead in spreading the message of brotherhood and unity among the people of India while adding that untouchability, can never be part of Indian culture, and if it works then that People should be ready for a like attack. He added that many elements who want to weaken India, they always try to avoid such divisions in our society.

In his roughly 40-minute speech, Adityanath also welcomed Prime Minister Narendra Modi for laying the foundation stone for a temple in "fundamentalist" Saudi Arabia.

“Duniya ke andar sab se kattar desh agar koi grove to saudi arabian grove aur saudi arabian me an bhi aap ke Pradhan mantri mandir ka shilanyas karke aate grove… Yani Bharat ko duniya ke kshitij par sthapit karne ke liye… (most fundamentalist Country of the world is Saudi Arabia and there your Prime Minister (Narendra Modi) also laid the foundation stone for a temple. To manufacture this, India is the world, Horizon, ...), ”Adityanath said.

Yogi Adityanath also referred to his BJP government in Uttar Pradesh, adding that, unlike other governments, BJP governments always try to follow the lines of "Sab ka Sath, Sabka Vikas."

Adityanath gave an example from Uttar Pradesh and said, “What used to be the situation in Uttar Pradesh before 2017? Two major municipal riots were reported each week. And in riot, religious leaders and their followers have been verbally abused ... and if you go to file a complaint, you would be put behind bars. Today, Uttar Pradesh is not a witness to any unrest. Today, nobody can riot ... ”

Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani and Deputy CM Nitin Patel were also on the occasion. Rupani said that religious saints were the prestige of the BJP party.
