Addressing a massive rally at Changsari near here, Prime Minister Modi said, "There is a difference between infiltration by those who want to have a stranglehold over the country and migration of those who had to flee to India to escape religious persecution in Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan".

Taking a cue from Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu has called upon his party workers to express their resentment against Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit by wearing yellow and black clothes, and flying yellow and black balloons on Sunday.

"CM of Andhra promised to develop the infrastructure of Andhra but took a U-turn". The two projects the Prime Minister would dedicate to the nation include ONGC's Vasishta Gas Field in the Krishna-Godavari basin, set up at a cost of Rs 5,700 crore, and a storage facility of ISPRL, an undertaking of Petroleum Ministry, built at a cost of Rs 1,125 crore, the MP said. He also addressed a public function in Itanagar, where he stressed that improving connectivity to the north-eastern state was important.

The Prime Minister laid the foundation stone for a 100-bedded ESIC hospital, besides inaugurating a 470-bedded modern ESIC hospital in Chennai.

Leaders and activists of the ruling Telugu Desam Party (TDP), Congress, Left parties, employees' and student groups, trade unions and other mass organisations fighting for Special Category Status (SCS) for the state staged the protests in all 13 districts.

After Guntur, Modi will leave for Tiruppur in Tamil Nadu and will lay the foundation of various projects. He said, the corridor in the state will bring industry and investment opportunities for the youth.

The work for doubling of the Chikjajur-Mayakonda railway line was also inaugurated by the Prime Minister.

At Hubli in Karnataka, the Prime Minister laid the foundation stone of Indian Institute of Technology - Dharwad and Indian Institute of Information Technology - Dharwad.

Making a pitch for his government ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, the PM said that while the previous governments neglected the state for decades, the NDA government is trying to help in the development of North East.
