Modi to lead BJP's fast on April 12 against Parliament washout

UK Sikhs Raise Concerns with Theresa May to take up with Narendra Modi next week

The Congress today said Prime Minister Narendra Modi's announcement to observe a day-long fast on Thursday to protest the washout of the Budget Session of Parliament was a "farce", adding that the PM should instead apologise to the youth, Dalits and other sections of the society, who were allegedly let down by his government. The group's leader Velmurugan, too, was detained. Are we going to shoot you through the black flags? At some places, police were seen stopping vans transporting black balloons and bursting them.

A solid mass of protesters, with black flags and black balloons, lined Anna Salai - the approach roach. They, too, were picked up by the police.

The Cauvery protest led to massive traffic jams in and around the airport and Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman had to get down from her auto and walk for about a kilometre to reach the airport and receive the Prime Minister.

DMK working president MK Stalin had said that the PM will be received with black flags upon his arrival in Chennai.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Chennai has been met with a wave of protests, especially over the Cauvery issue.

Public anger over Cauvery waters had peaked since March 29, as the Centre failed to draw up a neutral body to oversee the sharing of Cauvery waters between Tamil Nadu and Karnataka as directed by the Supreme Court.

Besides the DMK, Kamal Haasan and Rajinikanth, too, have been at the forefront of protests demanding the formation of the CMB. The party in power, BJP, has blamed the Opposition led by Congress for the deadlock. "Our commitment to peace is just as strong as our commitment to protecting our people and our territory", Modi said after formally inaugurating the Defence Expo 2018 in Chennai.

As per the schedule devised by BJP, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman will observe fast in Chennai, Minister of State (External Affairs) MJ Akbar will be in Vidisha; while Tourism minister K J Alphons will observe the fast in Kerala.
