'Go back Modi,' cry reigns high, black flag stir across Tamil Nadu

Every day the park receives at least 600 visitors, and 1,000-1500 on holidays.

Modi, while addressing over 20,000 Swachhagrahis (cleanliness volunteers) at the concluding ceremony of "Champaran Satyagraha" centenary celebrations in Motihari on Tuesday, accused the opposition of trying to "divide" the country and creating hurdles "from streets to parliament" in the governments' efforts to uplift the poor and the downtrodden.

In fact Modi, who travelled by road in Chennai and deviated from his schedule to meet Karunanidhi when he came down for the Daily Thanthi event a few months ago, had to stay away from the Chennai roads only fearing the protesters. Modi is also going to inaugurate the Defence Expo in Tamil Nadu.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Bharatiya Janata Party National President Amit Shah on Thursday led a fast by party MPs across the country in protest against the disruptions during the recently concluded Budget Session of Parliament.

As the Prime Minister's convoy passed through the campus to reach the adjacent Cancer Institute in Adyar, students wearing black shirts displayed placards condemning the Union government's higher education policies.

The protests and demonstrations against PM Modi are part of a demand from across the political spectrum that the Centre follows the orders of the Supreme Court and constitute the Cauvery Water Management Board (CWMB) immediately to apportion the waters of the Cauvery. "For this we are ready to take all necessary measures to equip our armed forces, including through the establishment of a strategically independent defence industrial complex", he said.

He said the government in recent years took many steps in the field of defence manufacturing licenses, defence offsets, defence exports clearances and on Foreign Direct Investment in defence manufacturing along with reforming India's defence procurement. More than 40 countries have sent their official delegations as well. The court had given the Centre six weeks to frame the scheme on the verdict.

Ahead of Modi's arrival at the airport here around 9 AM, protestors began congregating at several locations in groups in its vicinity.
