This Saturday is all about a tight schedule for Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Southern India. He will be inaugurating a host of developmental projects and will flag off the Secunderabad-Tirupati Vande Bharat Express.

A public meeting in the city's parade ground will be the highlight of his visit, following which the PM will leave for Chennai to inaugurate the New Integrated Terminal Building  at Chennai Airport and would later flag off the Chennai-Coimbatore Vande Bharat Express at MGR Chennai Central Railway Station. 

How the PM’s Day Is Lined Up –

The Day Would Start At Hyderabad In Telangana at 11.45 a.m 

  • Inauguration and foundation stone of Telangana project worth Rs 11,300 crore.
  • Flagging off the Secunderabad-Tirupati Vande Bharat Express.
  • Public Meeting at Parade Ground, Hyderabad, Source PTI
  • The foundation stone of AIIMS Bibinagar and five national highway projects. Projects worth Rs 1,350 crore and Rs 7,850 respectively.
  • Foundation Stone of the redevelopment of Secunderabad Railway Station, a project of more than 720 crore.
  • Flagging off 13 new Multi-Modal Transport Services (MMTS). A service in Hyderabad – Secunderabad region providing commuters with fast and comfortable travel.
  • A visit to the Secunderabad – Mahabubnagar Project, a project completed at the cost of Rs 1,410 crore to provide seamless connectivity enhancing the average speed of trains.

PM To Reach Chennai in Tamil Nadu at 3 p.m

  • The Prime Minister will first inaugurate the state-of-the-art integrated terminal building at Chennai airport, developed at a total outlay of Rs 2,437. 
  • Flag off the Vande Bharat train between Chennai and Coimbatore at the Puratchi Thalaivar, Dr MGR Central Railway Station.

Meanwhile, the PM’s jam-packed schedule is likely to get disturbed by Telangana’s ruling BRS party which gave a protest call against Modi's visit to the state. The protest is over the Centre’s alleged attempt to privatise Singareni mines. 

BRS working president and Telangana IT minister KT Rama Rao called for a 'maha dharna' accusing the Central government’s 'veiled attempts' to privatise the state-owned Singareni Collieries Company Limited (SCCL).
