The All Assam Students' Union (AASU) and Krishak Mukri Sangram Samiti (KMSS) earlier in the day said that their members will wave black flags as a mark of protest in different parts of the state on Saturday when the Prime Minister is scheduled to address a public rally at Changsari near Guwahati.

This is PM Modi's first visit to the state after the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) pulled out of the NDA following a fallout over the Special Category Status a year ago.

Modi said Naidu had promised to turn around the infrastructure of Andhra Pradesh but instead he took a U-turn.

The union wants its use at the big league level delayed until 2020. "We're hopeful that we see a rebound from a year ago but, again, hard to predict at this point", he said.


Invoking the legacy of NTR, Modi alleged the Andhra CM was insulting the TDPfounder, to which Naidu responded by saying, "personal attacks would beget personal attacks". Slogans like "Modi Go Back, ' "Scrap Citizenship Bill, ' 'Joi Aai Asom" and 'BJP hai hai" were hurled at the Prime Minister. "You have placed a government in Delhi who is putting a lock on corruption", Mr Modi said.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi who arrived in Karnataka on Sunday to launch various projects including the new building of the IIT at Dharwad, made use of the opportunity to castigate the coalition government terming Mr H.D. Kumaraswamy as a 'weak chief minister'. Modi added that the Opposition wants to impose the same model on the rest of the country.

The Chief Minister also continued his outburst at the Prime Minister, accusing him of ruining the country and all the systems.

On Naidu's claim that he is senior to Modi, the Prime Minister said the TDP leader was a senior in losing elections and shattering the dreams of people.

"Publicly, he weeps about his helplessness". "From the seas to the skies, the Congress has several scams associated with defence and, in the process, the party did not allow the modernisation of defence forces for long years that they were in power", Modi said. In Karnataka and Andhra, chief ministers Kumaraswamy and Naidu skipped the courtesy of receiving Modi at the airport.

Naidu also called demonetisation a "mad Tughlaq act".
