Chennai, Oct 18: Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi reached Chennai around 2:30 pm on Friday, Oct 18. The BJP PM candidate, while addressing a crowd gathered to welcome him, mocked at the UPA government at the centre over Unnao gold hunt bizarre.

Criticising the central government-led by Congress, Modi provided a solution to upgrade economy of the country. The CM said, "Bring back black money stashed away in Swiss banks, and you won't have to go around hunting for buried gold."

Modi's statement was aimed at the UPA government which has asked Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) to carry out digging at Unnao in Uttar Pradesh whereover 1,000 tonnes of Gold is believed to have been buried under a fort.

A sadhu, Shobhan Sarkar, dreamt of a buried treasure under the Unnao fort of Raja Ram Bux Singh. He convinced the Union minister Charandas Mahant about his dream saying that there are over 1,000 tonnes of Gold.

Expressing his disappointment regarding the digging at Unnao, Modi claimed, "The whole world is making fun of us, someone dreamt it and the govt has gone hunting for gold."

He also asserted that Tamil Nadu has "aimed to change the government in Delhi." Referring to cyclone phailini, which recently devastated Orissa and Andhra Pradesh but did not loom over the region for a long time, Modi said, "The cyclone (Phailin) could not stay because there is another cylcone, cyclone of change which did not let it stay."

Modi is scheduled to attend a function at Madras University later in the evening. He will also meet his counterpart in Tamil Nadu -- Jayalalithaa around 6:00 PM.

Earlier Madras High Court rejected a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) which had opposed Modi's presence in the Madras University function. Tamizhnadu Makkal Katchi (TMK) president -- Thanga Tamizhvelan earlier had filed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) opposing Modi's participation in the function which has been arranged by the Palkhivala Foundation to release a book authored by Arun Shourie.
