PM in South India: Modi tears into opposition during his 3 rallies


Guntur, Feb 10: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday addressed three rallies in Southern India and unveiled development projects in Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. Modi left no stone unturned to launch scathing attack on the opposition in all three rallies.

PM Modi began his day by landing in Vijaywada's Gannavaram airport, where he was received by the Governor. Breaking protocol, no one from Chandrababu Naidu's cabinet was present at the airport. Only the state Chief Secretary and the police chief were there. After a rally in Guntur, PM Modi visited Tiruppur, Tamil Nadu, and Hubbali, Karnataka, later in the day.

Modi laid the foundation stone for Krishnapatnam Bharat Petroleum Corp. Ltd (BPCL) coastal terminal project in Guntur.

In Karnataka, Pm Modi took a jibe at HD Kumaraswamy over the political turmoil in Karnataka and said during his Huballi rally that it is difficult to know who is in charge of the state.
