The man's self-immolation attempt came on a day when Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the country's mega defence exhibition, Defexpo, in Thiruvidanthai. Protestors have shown him black flags, launched giant black balloons and raised slogans like "Modi go back".

On February 16, the court had ordered the Central government to set up the Cauvery water Management Board (CMB) and Cauvery Water Regulation Committee (CWRC) within six weeks, in regards to the Cauvery River water dispute between Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. There were at least 10,000 police personnel present to prevent the situation from worsening.

At IIT Madras where Modi's chopper landed to take the private lane to reach the cancer institute, students protested with black flags. "As a country, as a society we all are ashamed of it", the Prime Minister said.

Highlighting the role played by the BJP government in reviving the defence sector, Modi said that on May 2014, defence export permissions granted stood at 118, for a total value of $577 million.

We are committed to establishing 2 Defence Industrial Corridors: 1 in TN & 1 in UP.

Forget farcical fast, reconvene Parliament for debate: Congress to BJP
He said the Budget session was lost to the uproar created by the Congress and other Opposition parties without any rhyme or reason.


I am delighted & overwhelmed to see an enthusiastic gathering in this historic region of Kanchipuram in the great State of Tamil Nadu.

"In all these areas, our regulations, processes and procedures have been made more industry-friendly, more transparent, more predictable, more outcome-oriented", he added. Although forest officials did not specifically cite Modi's visit as the reason, sources said they had received instructions to close the park for security reasons.

BJP's fast is a bid 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.

Ahead of Modi's arrival at the airport here around 9 AM, protestors began congregating at several locations in groups in its vicinity. Manithaneya Jananayaga Katchi led by MLA M Thamimun Ansari, Nam Tamizhar Katchi leader Seeman and pro-Tamil leader Nedumaran wore black shirts and staged a protest demonstration in the vicinity of the airport before being detained.
