PM Narendra Modi in Chennai: Opposition parties stage black flag protest

PM Narendra Modi in Chennai: Opposition parties stage black flag protest

Addressing the gathering during Dr. Ambedkar National Memorial inauguration ceremony here, the Prime Minister assured that justice will be served to the daughters of the country. After mammoth protests on Tuesday ahead of a game, all the home matches of Chennai Super Kings (CSK) were shifted to Pune.

Meanwhile inaugurating the DefExpo, Modi hit out at the previous UPA government for "policy paralysis" in the defence sector and told foreign companies that it will not take a decade to take a decision on procurement of a batch of 110 fighter jets. Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman was present at the airport to receive the PM. This is the land of our glorious maritime legacy. We have seen the damage such laziness, incompetence or perhaps some hidden motives can cause to the nation. These will utilize defence manufacturing ecosystems in the regions & further build upon it.

"In less than four years, we have issued 794 more export permissions, for a total value of over $1.3 billion", he said.

"In all these areas, our regulations, processes and procedures have been made more industry-friendly, more transparent, more predictable, more outcome-oriented", he added. A giant hot air balloon, also in black with "Go Back Modi" printed on it, was flown atop the house of former Chennai Mayor Ma Subramanian in Saidapet in Chennai. Modi did not utter a word about the Cauvery issue in his speeches Thursday.

The Prime Minister arrives at the venue of the Defence Expo2018 in Mahabalipuram.

As decided by the BJP's parliamentary party on the last day of the Budget session, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, party president Amit Shah and all party MPs will observe a fast on Thursday to protest against the impasse in Parliament.

Students were also seen protesting by the road inside the IIT-M campus, demanding that Higher Education Funding Agency be scrapped. He was received by Tamil Nadu Governor Banwarilal Pandit, Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami, and deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam. Besides, black balloons were also released by them.
