  • China protests visit by India's Modi to disputed border area

"He is insulting the great culture of Andhra", said the Prime Minister.

Modi's attack on Naidu came as the Andhra chief minister is preparing for a show of unity of Opposition parties in Delhi with his 12-hour relay fast on February 13 over the Centre's denial of special status to his state.

"This chowkidar (watchman) has disturbed his sleep. wanted to know the details of every paise given to Andhra Pradesh", Modi said.

Addressing a massive rally at Changsari near here, Prime Minister Modi said, "There is a difference between infiltration by those who want to have a stranglehold over the country and migration of those who had to flee to India to escape religious persecution in Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan".

Modi said Naidu had promised to turn around the infrastructure of Andhra Pradesh but instead he took a U-turn.

The Chief Minister promised the redevelopment of Amaravati but is now engaged in his own development, the Prime Minister alleged.

PM Modi said for a long time opposition parties created tension in the society on the issue of social justice. "They say Modi government is a failure".




On the occasion, the Prime Minister dedicated two petroleum and gas projects to the nation.

Meanwhile, the protests over Citizenship Amendment Bill is still continued in the Northeast and there are the expectations that it might be intensified during PM Modi visit to the state.

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 past year.

Police detained four Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuba Chatra Parishad (AJYCP) members, including the student body's Guwahati city committee president Pradip Kalita, and five students of Gauhati University for waving black flags at the Prime Minister's convoy while Modi was travelling from Raj Bhavan to the Guwahati airport on Saturday morning.

The Chandrababu Naidu-led party quit the BJP-led alliance protesting the "injustice" done to the state post-bifurcation.

"The chief minister's whole energy is spent on saving his seat from big Congress leaders", Modi said, referring to Kumaraswamy, who has often expressed his helplessness in the face of coalition pressures.
