Citizenship Bill Row: Protests Greet PM Modi in Assam

Citizenship Bill Row: Protests Greet PM Modi in Assam

While Prime Minister Narendra Modi faced black flags from angry demonstrators on reaching Guwahati on Saturday, several protests now await him in Andhra Pradesh, where he is scheduled to address a rally on Sunday, February 10.

The TDP leader, who has to resist the arrogance of the Naamdaars (famous and powerful people) and crush their arrogance is siding with them, Modi said in an apparent swipe at Naidu joining hands with the Congress. Drawing a comparison between the loan waiver scheme of the state government and Centre's plans for the welfare of farmers, he said the Prime Minister's Kisan Yojana will benefit more than 12 crore farmers in the country.

This is PM Modi's first visit to the state after the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) pulled out of the NDA following a fallout over the Special Category Status previous year.

Naidu will stage the "Dharma Porata Deeksha" (a day-long protest for justice) at the Andhra Pradesh Bhavan in the national capital from 8 am to 8 pm on Monday.

Invoking the legacy of NTR, Modi alleged the Andhra CM was insulting the TDPfounder, to which Naidu responded by saying, "personal attacks would beget personal attacks".

After two tense months, the troops from both countries withdrew and last April, Modi met with Xi Jinping in an effort to reset bilateral relations.

He said the Prime Minister did not have a family or a son.

Horton says, if not for injuries that put a bit of a damper on his career, Granderson could have ended up like Robinson. Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred released the following statement in the wake of Robinson's passing.

In a state where there is 69 per cent reservation, PM Modi said social justice is an article of faith for his government and not a mathematical equation.

"The chief minister here is everyone's punching bag".

"Everyone is involved in saving their seat", Modi said, adding that for the sake of power "MLAs are fighting at hotels and breaking their heads. That is why the honest have trust on Modi while the corrupt have a problem", he said at a public rally here.

Irrigation Minister Devineni Uma Maheswara Rao led a protest in Vijayawada.

Naidu, who had earlier welcomed demonetisation when it was announced on November 8, 2016, now called it a "mad Tughlaq act".

Modi laid the foundation stone for ESI Medical College Hospital in the city and inaugurated the final stretch of the Chennai Metro Rail Phase I via video conferencing.
