"Modi's AP tour is an utter flop".

Besides the TDP, the Left parties and the Congress will also protest against Modi's visit.

"This chowkidar (watchman) has disturbed his sleep. wanted to know the details of every paise given to Andhra Pradesh", Modi said.

Targeting the Congress, he said "Those who had the opportunity to rule the nation for years did not bother about India's defence sector".

Naidu also alleged that YSR Congress mobilised crowds for the Prime Minister's public meeting at Guntur as the BJP had totally "lost" public support in the state.

Naidu will stage the "Dharma Porata Deeksha" (a day-long protest for justice) at the Andhra Pradesh Bhavan in the national capital from 8 am to 8 pm on Monday.

In an attempt to establish a connect with the local audience, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday quoted from Thirukurual and peppered his speech with local names.

After two tense months, the troops from both countries withdrew and last April, Modi met with Xi Jinping in an effort to reset bilateral relations.

In a state where there is 69 per cent reservation, PM Modi said social justice is an article of faith for his government and not a mathematical equation.

Hours after China expressed its displeasure over Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Arunachal Pradesh, Ministry of External Affairs asserted that the state of Arunachal Pradesh is an "integral and inalienable part" of India.

Moments before addressing party workers at Perumanallur near Tirupur, which has a sizable north Indian migrant population, Modi had shared the dais with chief minister Edappadi K Palaniswami to lay the foundation for a few projects and inaugurate a few others across the state through videoconferencing.

The Chandrababu Naidu-led party quit the BJP-led alliance protesting the "injustice" done to the state post-bifurcation.

KMSS chief Akhil Gogoi said on Friday that Modi would be shown black flags by 70 organisations protesting against the Citizenship Amendment Bill on Saturday.

Carrying black flags, they took out rallies and staged sit-ins at different places.

"The chief minister's whole energy is spent on saving his seat from big Congress leaders", Modi said, referring to Kumaraswamy, who has often expressed his helplessness in the face of coalition pressures.
