Modi to visit Chennai March 6, to address mega rally

With works for Lok Sabha elections gaining momentum, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to visit Chennai on March 6, during which he is expected to address a mega rally.

According to soures, alliance partners including AIADMK leaders Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami and Deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam, PMK chief S Ramadoss and others will be part of the rally.

Meanwhile, Modi will visit Tamil Nadu’s Kanyakumari on March 1 to launch various welfare schemes, the BJP said on Tuesday.

In a statement issued in Chennai, the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) Tamil Nadu unit said he would also address a public rally after launching the welfare schemes.

In the meantime, the Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam would stage a demonstration by waving black flags in case Prime Minister Narendra Modi comes to Kanaykumari on March 1 to launch the BJP’s poll campaign in the state, MDMK chief Vaiko said Tuesday.

Vaiko made the remarks a day after Union Minister of State for Finance and Shipping Pon Radhakrishnan reportedly appealed to the MDMK chief not to wave black flags at the Prime Minister as he had done in the past.
