PM Modi to Visit Chennai today, to launch a Scheme!
Today Prim Minister Narendra Modi will travel to Chennai to launch a state government scheme that will give a Rs 25,000 crore subsidy to women to buy scooters.
This visit is being seen to hint at the AIADMK cosying up to the BJP. The launch of the scheme titled as- Amma Two-wheeler Scheme – has been timed to coincide with the birth anniversary of AIADMK leader Jayalalithaa who had first promised the 50 per cent subsidy scheme in the run-up to the 2016 assembly elections.
PM’s visit comes just days after Deputy Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, O Panneerselvam, this confirms the assumptions that the BJP’s top leadership, had a key role to play in the merger of the AIADMK’s two parts; one led by him and another by Chief Minister EK Palaniswami.
As per the sources, Mr Panneerselvam, last week told his supporters that it was the nudge from PM Modi that led him to agree to the merged of the two factions created after Jayalalithaa’s death in December 2016.
On this, ” Narendra Modi said that, Panneerselvam could join the merger just to save the party and under the present circumstances, the two [factions] should merge to save the party.
The PM had met with the leaders of both factions ahead of the merger, assuming that the BJP’s desire to end divisions within the regional party it believes can help it gain some ground in Tamil Nadu and also in the Rajya Sabha, where it is in a minority.
A woman from Tennessee was arrested on Friday as she drives straight into White House security barrier but did not breach it. The woman was driving a vcan and she did all this intentionally. Soon after the incident took place, she was immediately apprehended and put under the bars.
Neither gunfire took place nor any law enforcement personnel were hurt, the Secret Service said in a statement just after the mishap.
Interestingly, this 35 years old woman was convicted last year of trying to climb a White House barrier.
“The female was again charged today with numerous criminal violations and transported to the Metropolitan Police Department,” the statement read.
The woman was seen holding a gun in her hand.
As per the sources, this woman faces charges of unlawful entry, carrying a pistol without a license, possession of an unregistered firearm, aggravated assault on a police officer, assault with a dangerous weapon-car, destruction of government property and contempt of court.
An eyewitness revealed that, “This minivan came and crashed into the barricade and tried to push through the barricade and tires were burning rubber and a lot of smoke was coming up.”
“And then about 30 seconds after that the two security guards that were in the booth, ordered her to stop doing what she was doing and she didn’t listen,” further added the eyewitness.
The White House was put on a temporary partial lock-down following the crash, as all this took place just after a meeting between US President Donald Trump and Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.
Trump later tweeted: “Thank you to the great men and women of the United States @SecretService for a job well done!”
Citing unnamed law enforcement sources, said the action of driving into the barricade was not directed at the president or anyone at the White House and that mental health issues may have been a factor.

Earlier in April 2017 Bajaj and Kawasaki officially announced that they are no longer partners in sales and service in India and this has set Kawasaki back by many years since the bike makers can no longer continue selling (and servicing) their motorcycles via Bajaj’s widespread network.
Earlier these two work together as partners and Kawsaki used to assemble all their motorcycles at Bajaj Auto’s Akurdi factory in Pune.
The company is establishing a new development center in Pune, where it already has its assembling line. Kawasaki will increase its local procurement,said Yamashita. Currently, the company imports bikes as completely knocked down (CKD) and semi-knocked down units, she further added.
The installed capacity at the Pune plant is around 10,000 units and the overall capacity can be increased to 60,000 units, if all machinery is in place.
FYI… Kawasaki ended its eight year alliance with Bajaj Auto for sales and services in India. India Kawasaki Motors is a completely owned subsidiary of Japan’s Kawasaki Heavy Industries Ltd. The unit was established in India in 2010.
