Prime Minister Narendra Modi is all set to visit Madurai in Tamil Nadu for foundation laying ceremony of All India Institute of Medical Sciences.
But there is also a #GoBackModi that is trending on Twitter ahead of his visit.
The posts largely reflect the state’s anger over PM Modi not visiting the districts in Tamil Nadu that were ravaged by cyclone Gaja.
This is due to the more than 3 lakh homeless and uprooted around 11 lakh trees while also crippling the livelihood of a huge population as outcome of cyclone Gaja.

Thousands of other tweets, meanwhile, welcomed PM Modi to Madurai and thanked him for setting up AIIMS in the city. Hashtags like #MaduraiThanksModi and #TNWelcomesModi too are among the top trends on Twitter.
