Modi No Entry: Andhra Pradesh Witnesses Several Anti-Modi Hoardings
While no political party has taken responsibility for them, a TDP spokesperson said that they visualise anger of the people in the state.
Ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Andhra Pradesh visit, a bunch of anti-Modi posters and hoardings have made their way into public spaces in the state.
According to a report in The News Minute, several billboards with messages like “Modi No Entry” and “Modi Never Again” written on it have been put up in Guntur and Vijayawada and even at the Gannavaram Airport. In one of the hoardings, Modi is depicted as being chased by a large number of angry people; while, in the another, he can be seen hanging his head.
While no political party has taken responsibility for the act, TDP national spokesperson Dinakar Lanka said that billboards visualise the anger of the people in the state. The BJP, of course, demanded police action against the people who have put up the billboards. The police have reportedly ordered the municipal authorities to remove the objectionable hoardings, adding they are probing the matter to find out the motive behind the act.
This visit to Andhra Pradesh is Modi’s first since the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) snapped ties with the Bharatiya Janata Party(BJP)-led NDA.
