He said, “In the opinion of doctors, that is impossible to fast for 11 days. Modi said he was fasting, but it did not look like he was fasting.”

While talking to the media persons at Chikkaballapur, he alleged, "While I was on a morning walk with the doctor, he told me, "A human cannot stay alive; if he is alive, then what is the miracle?" Therefore, I doubt if he has fasted. If he had entered the sanctum sanctorum without fasting, then that place becomes impure, and the power won't get generated from that place."
