Narendra Modi last visited Andhra Pradesh on 1 March to address a public meeting in Visakhapatnam. Organised at the Railway Grounds in the city, the meeting saw him take a dig at the local government and exude confidence that despite all the criticism against him, BJP would come to power in the upcoming elections and ensure all-round development to the state.
