PM Narendra Modi denies bias against any southern states


Prime Minister Narendra Modi will work on Thursday (tomorrow) but on an empty stomach as he keeps a day's fast along with other lawmakers of the ruling BJP in protest against disruptions in Parliament.

Prime Minister was received at the Airport by Tamil Nadu Governor Banwarilal Purohit, chief-minister Edapadi K. Palaniswami, deputy chief-minister O. Panneerselvam, chief-secretary Girija Vaidyanathan and other senior civil and police officials.

Barcelona 2-1 Valencia: 3 things that went right for Barcelona
I have to congratulate the players for doing so, it wasn't easy. "Today we played against the third-placed team, and we won". Villarreal are sixth on 48 points, Sevilla are seventh on 47, with Betis fifth on 52 after winning 1-0 at Girona on Friday.

While choosing to brush aside the Cauvery protests, Mr Modi, who lashed out at his political adversaries, especially states that targeted him on the ToR of the 15th Finance Commission, said his BJP-led government was working on the principle of Sabka Sat, Sabka Vikas (collective efforts, inclusive growth).

The move coincides with Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Adyar Cancer Institute, which is adjacent to the park, on Thursday.

"You would also recall the long-drawn process of procurement of fighter aircraft that never reached any conclusion (during the previous government)".

In fact Modi, who travelled by road in Chennai and deviated from his schedule to meet Karunanidhi when he came down for the Daily Thanthi event a few months ago, had to stay away from the Chennai roads only fearing the protesters. Listing his government's initiatives to promote defence production in India, Prime Minister accused the previous UPA government of policy paralysis in the defence sector. Since the government is nearly the only buyer, you need the government to grant an order.

In May 2014, the total number of defence export permission granted stood at 118, for a total value of 577 million dollars. These will utilise defence manufacturing ecosystems in the regions and further build upon it.
