Chennai, Jan 24: CPI(M) and CPI on Saturday staged a protest demonstration against the visit of US President Barack Obama to the country.
The demonstration was held here and in Sivaganga. CPI(M) MLA A Soundararajan, talking to reporters here, alleged that the visit of Obama was only aimed at getting favours for the American corporates by "compromising" the interests of Indian public sector units.
Slogans were raised condemning the US President's three-day visit starting tomorrow.
Obama will be in India as he has been invited by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to be a part of the Republic Day celebrations in Delhi.
