Modi, Shah lead BJP MPs fast against Parliament disruption

The Congress on Wednesday urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to think of "accountability" in the past year of his tenure instead of resorting to "escapism", describing Thursday's planned fast by the BJP as the worst kind of political chicanery. Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman will observe the fast in Chennai, Human Resource Development Minister Prakash Javdekar in Benguluru, Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Vijay Goel in Tamil Nadu and Minister of State for External Affairs MJ Akbar in Vidisha, Madhya Pradesh.

Veteran film director Bharathiraja and film-maker Ameer were among those who held demonstrations near the airport, raising slogans against Modi on the Cauvery issue over which the state has been witnessing protests for the past many days.

The Modi will also unveil the plaque inaugurating the diamond jubilee building, palliative care centre (Mahvir Ashray) at Sriperumbudur, Daycare center and nurses quarter at the Adyar Cancer Institute.

Black balloons were also flown throughout the city. While Home Minister Rajnath Singh will fast in Lucknow, Roads and Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari will fast in Nagpur.

He said the government in recent years took many steps in the field of defence manufacturing licenses, defence offsets, defence exports clearances and on Foreign Direct Investment in defence manufacturing along with reforming India's defence procurement. Many say that he did so because he wasn't bold enough to face the people of Tamil Nadu on the streets.

Protests led by the opposition DMK turned massive as cinema directors, other political parties like Vaiko's MDMK, Velmurugan's Thamizhaga Vazhvurimai Katchi and others joined the agitation. In his bid to avoid the protestors, Modi took a chopper to visit IIT campus.

Before the PM's flight to Delhi took off from the airport around 2.30 pm, Palaniswami submitted a memorandum to him demanding constitution of the Cauvery Water Management Board as per the SC order. The black balloon had a simple message in a stark white text: "Modi go back".

Protesters planted black flags on the way and also reached the Chennai airport in large numbers even as 10,000 policemen stood guard to prevent any untoward incidents.

The protest against Modi in Chennai has resulted in a massive traffic jam across the city.
