Some users thought he was visiting Tamil Nadu because as we remember it is the only state that has been most associated with #GoBackModi. It was in September 2019, that the hashtag was again trending when Modi had arrived for the convocation of IIT Madras.
When I saw #GobackModi trending in Twitter India, I thought he was visiting Tamil Nadu again. But this time, it is the people of BJP ruled Karnataka which is trending the popular hashtag! #GobackModi and take that Tejasvi Surya with you.— Korah Abraham (@thekorahabraham) January 2, 2020
If the #GoBackModi trend holds, Karnataka would be the fourth state in less than a year where a visit by Modi has led to the hashtag trending.
In November last year, when Modi arrived for campaigning in the Assembly polls in Jharkhand, #GoBackModi was among the top Twitter trends.
Meanwhile, a large number of farmers who wanted to stage a demonstration against Prime Minister Narendra Modi protesting the non-implementation of the 'Swaminathan Report' was detained at Bengaluru, Tumakuru and Shivamogga, police said on Thursday.
According to police, the detentions have taken place in certain parts of Tumakuru, near Bengaluru as well as in Shivamogga.
As part of his two-day visit to Karnataka, Modi is scheduled to visit Tumakuru on Thursday to pay his obeisance to the departed seer of Siddaganga Math Shivakumara Swamiji and meet the present pontiff Siddalinga Mahaswamiji.
Later, he would address a mega public meeting where he will give away the Krishi Karman awards.
In the evening he will reach Bengaluru to visit the DRDO facility to dedicate five DRDO Young Scientists Laboratories to the nation.
