PM vows to 'take all steps to protect people, territory'; DMK protests

Parliament disruption: PM Modi, Amit Shah to fast tomorrow

Every day the park receives at least 600 visitors, and 1,000-1500 on holidays.

"In thousands of years of history we have never desired anyone's territory, rather than wining countries through wars, India has believed in winning hearts". As Modi's convoy passed through the sprawling IIT Madras campus on the way to institute, some in the crowd briefly raised placards against the Central government on the Cauvery issue.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will observe a day-long fast on April 12 along BJP MPs including party President Amit Shah to protest against the washout of the second part of Parliament's budget session due to continuous disruptions, which the BJP blamed on the Congress.

With protesters lined up enroute, the Prime Minister was forced to stay off roads and depend on a chopper instead to reach Thiruvidanthai, the venue of DefExpo, the prestigious exhibition that seeks to project India as one of the major defence manufacturing hubs.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday slammed the Opposition for putting roadblocks in the way of the government's development efforts. 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".

He said that his government was committed to protecting the country's territory and for this, the country would equip the armed forces with modern arms. More than 40 countries have sent their official delegations as well. Today's protest comes two days after pro-Tamil outfits opposing the IPL match in the city, trying to play spoilsport over the Cauvery issue. The court had given the Centre six weeks to frame the scheme on the verdict. All the opposition parties and leaders have accused the ruling All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) of failing to make the Centre constitute the Board within the deadline given by the Supreme Court in its judgment on 16 February. PM Modi's drive here would only be inside the premises.

Similar black balloon and flag protests were witnessed all over Tamil Nadu. The group's leader Velmurugan, too, was detained.
