‘Livid’ Congress may greet PM Modi with black flags in Chennai

Chennai, Aug. 6 : Extremely upset with the move to suspend 25 lawmakers from the Lok Sabha, the Congress Party has decided to show black flags to Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his visit to Chennai tomorrow.

TNCC president E V K S Elangovan said that they would ask Prime Minister Modi to revoke the suspension.

“We are going to show black flag to (Prime Minister) Modi, because Modi’s Government has suspended 25 Congress MPs without any solid reason. To show our displeasure at all India level, Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi are protesting inside the Parliament along with other leaders,” Elangovan told ANI.

“We, at Tamil Nadu level, will show black flags to (Prime Minister) Modi to show that we are not happy, we will ask him to revoke the suspension,” he added.

Meanwhile, DMK leader T K S Elangovan said that his party would receive the Prime Minister only after getting a formal invitation.

“The Prime Minister is coming and there are protocol arrangements. We have four MPs, and our MPs will get the invitation…We have no separate invitation. Our MPs will receive him… If we are invited then we will go to receive him, there are procedures,” he said.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will launch the first National Handloom Day at a national level function in Chennai tomorrow.

The program will be held in the prestigious Centenary hall of Madras University. The date August 7 has been chosen due to its special significance in India’s history; it was on this day that the Swadeshi Movement was launched in 1905. (ANI)
