Gandhinagar: Gujarat Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel on Monday said Gujarat will observe state-wide mourning on November 2. The decision was taken during a high-level meeting, which was chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, today at Raj Bhavan here.

“A high level meeting was held at Gandhinagar Raj Bhavan chaired by Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendrabhai Modi,” Gujarat CM tweeted in Gujarati.

“A decision has been taken in this meeting to observe a state-wide mourning in Gujarat on the next date, November 2, in mourning for the deceased who died in the tragedy of Morbi.”

The Gujarat CM further said that the national flag will be flown at half-mast on government buildings in the state on November 2 and that no government public functions, receptions or entertainment programs will be held.
