  • Prime Minister Narendra Modi addresses media at Hyderabad House in New Delhi on April 7

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will launch a slew of schemes meant for the poorest districts in the country on the birth anniversary of the chief architect of India Constitution. Every day the park receives at least 600 visitors, and 1,000-1500 on holidays.

The East Coast road would be completely shut an hour ahead of PM Modi's visit to keep protesters at bay.

Modi is observing a day-long fast in protest against washout of Parliament proceedings, also said the government's commitment to peace is just as strong as its commitment to protecting its people and territory.


Prime Minister Modi was on a visit to Tamil Nadu today to inaugurate a defence exhibition. The party, which has been leading the opposition in the protests over Cauvery water sharing issue, has organised various mass movements against the central and the state governments.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who inaugurated the Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar Memorial in New Delhi and also took the metro ride for reaching the venue, broke his silence on the Kathua and Unnao rape case and murders without naming the events. Actor-turned-politician Kamal Hassan took to twitter to make an open appeal to the Prime Minister regarding the formation of the Cauvery Management Board. The letter said that the reports, "attributed mostly to unnamed government sources, are increasingly profiling the Sikhs in India and overseas in very negative light".

Opposition parties, however, have called the fast a charade. The move will adversely affect all the southern states, with Tamil Nadu, estimated to lose at least Rs 40,000 crore per year. "People are more important than elections", says Haasan, urging the PM to ensure that the Supreme Court verdict on the matter is implemented in time. He was received by Tamil Nadu Governor Banwarilal Pandit, Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami, and deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam. PM Modi is also fasting. Holding black flags, protesters assembled near the airport in Alandur area. Thamizhaga Vazhvurimai Katchi leader Velmurugan and other protesters have been detained.
