PM Narendra Modi postpones his visit to Andhra Pradesh

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who was slated to visit Andhra Pradesh on 6 January, has postponed his visit to the state. A meeting in Kerala, on the same day, is being cited as the reason for the sudden postponement.

The news came while arrangements were being made by BJP members in Guntur for the PM’s visit. Modi’s address at the Bible Mission Grounds in Guntur was supposed to be the party’s launchpad for the 2019 Assembly elections in Andhra Pradesh.

Meanwhile, BJP members have informed that Narendra Modi is likely to visit Andhra Pradesh in the last week of January or early February. An announcement on the same from the PMO is expected soon.

“As per the initial plan, Modi was scheduled to address a public meeting in Thiruvananthapuram on January 6 morning and then reach Guntur. However, the Kerala unit is contemplating changing the venue due to the ongoing burning Sabarimala issue. The security aspect due to the rush of devotees to Sabarimala shrine could be another reason,” a BJP source was quoted

as saying by The New Indian Express.

It may be recalled that Telugu Desam Party, led by Chandrababu Naidu, has been launching scathing attacks on the PM ahead of his scheduled visit to the state. In fact, earlier, CM Naidu had urged

the people to boycott Narendra Modi’s visit, as a resentment to the ‘injustice’ done to Andhra Pradesh.
