#GoBackModi becomes top trend once again as PM Modi visits Tamil Nadu


Prime Minister Narendra Modi is visiting Tamil Nadu on Friday where he is scheduled to launch five National Highway projects worth Rs 3,000 crore in Kanyakumari. While in the state, Modi is also expected to launch a road safety park and transport museum. However, just like his visit to the state in early February this year, #GoBackModi has once again become a top trend in protest of his visit to Tamil Nadu.


#GoBackModi becoming a top trend assumes significance since this is on a day Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman is to be released by Pakistan. The captured Indian Air Force pilot is from Tamil Nadu, where people are very angry because the prime minister has not spoken on the Indian hero’s capture by the Pakistani army. Many are also upset as they blame Modi for the recent de-escalation at the LoC, resulting in the downing of one MiG 21 and crash of one military chopper that killed six Air Force officers.

Also staging protests today are MDMK whose workers have planned to express their anger against Modi’s visit. The party’s general secretary said that his workers will show black flags to Modi for his decision to not visit the regions affected by the Gaja cyclone last year.

Modi will also be in Andhra Pradesh today with the ruling TDP planning to boycott him during his visit to Visakhapatnam.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi being greeted by black flags across India has become a popular sight these days. Last month he had faced nude protests and was shown black flags in Assam.
