As per Latest Praveen Sinha Interviews, he said that, "Religious preacher Morari Bapu has kindly consented to inaugurate the camp on Saturday morning. We have established a temporary hospital at Bhavnath Mandir gate in Junagadh. There will be all kinds of disciplines available free of cost."

"We have tied up with private hospitals in order to get all kinds of medical facility for patients. Super-specialist doctors will be available at camp. We are expecting at least 5,000 patients to be treated everyday during the five-day camp. The camp is limited not only to pilgrims, but for all. Anybody can come here."

"The idea is to serve people, mostly poor who come to Bhavnath fair from different parts of the state. Every year, more than seven lakh people visit the fair. Also, we have arranged for surgical operations. If doctors find during check-ups that a patient needs surgery, they will recommend him or her to a hospital where that person will be provided free operation."

Bhavnath fair is held every year at the Bhavnath Shiv Mahadev Temple near Damodar Kund at Girnar Mountain in Junagadh District. It is dedicated to Lord Shiva and a lot of revelry goes on at the Shiva temple.

Naga Sadhus also visit the temple and their procession to the temple on the evening of Mahashivratri is a major attraction. Grand puja of Lord Shiva is conducted in the midnight of Mahashivratri.
