Andhra CM calls for protests during Modi's visit

IANS  |  Amaravati 

Chief Minister N. on Saturday asked members and cadres of his Telugu Desam Party (TDP) to stage protests during Prime Minister Modi's visit to the state on Sunday.

Naidu, who is also the President, told the cadres and party members during a teleconference calls that the protests, against the Centre's "betrayal" to the state, should be organised on a scale that the whole country should take note of it.

Modi is scheduled to address a rally in Guntur. This will be his first visit to after snapped ties with the (BJP) last year.

The chief, who will be holding a day-long protest in New Delhi on Monday, said protests should be organised with the spirit shown by Mahatma Gandhi.

The TDP chief alleged that Modi was coming to the state to see the destruction following the bifurcation in 2014.

"Is he coming here to see whether people are still alive?" Naidu had earlier remarked on Modi's visit.

Naidu said there was a conspiracy to destabilise the state government.
