The rapport between the Tamil Nadu state and PM Narendra Modi has never strengthened in the past couple of years and we can instinctively feel the difference with many major incidents that appeared so far. According to Tamilians, Modi has largely failed to create a safe culture in their state and many of the centre schemes are a novelty there. They also claimed that Modi is in typical unconscious state whenever the state needs help.
Some of such instances were during the cyclone Gaja in TN state. The centre has allegedly failed to help the victims and hence, people trended hashtag #GoBackModi on their twitter accounts. The state's anger over Modi's silence during natural calamity is one of the primary reasons why Tamilians think Modi doesn't stand on his own promise.
The Cauvery water management issue and the very recent IAF WC Abhinandan's case is no different. On the one hand, people were angry on Modi for setting up the Cauvery water management board despite SC's order. People claimed that no requests and demands of Tamilians have been listened and just went unnoticed. On the other hand, Modi was busy with elections preparation by attending Kanyakumari rally when Abhianandam was captured in Pakitan custody. He was criticized for using the crucial situation for his political strategies.
On Wednesday, PM Modi has paid tribute to former CM of TN state MG Ramachandran by renaming the Chennai Central station after him. Modi has also inaugurated few developmental projects in Kanchipuram prior that. He also unveiled that all the to and from Tamil Nadu flights will have in-flight announcements in the Tamil language.
People slammed Modi for being kind only before the elections and netizens have asked him to go back for betraying Chennai in the past. Meanwhile, the renaming announcement has been made in the presence of Tamil Nadu CM Edappadi Palaniswamy and Deputy CM O Panneerselvam.
