Besides the TDP, the Left parties and the Congress will also protest against Modi's visit.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday hit out at Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu and said even though the latter had assured new projects for the poor, he ended up replicating the Centre's schemes. China routinely objects to Indian leaders visiting Arunachal Pradesh to highlight its stand.

Hours after China expressed its displeasure over Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Arunachal Pradesh, Ministry of External Affairs asserted that the state of Arunachal Pradesh is an "integral and inalienable part" of India.

At an event, he unveiled plaques to formally unveil the projects which have come up or would be built in different parts of the state.

While speaking to Telegu Desam Party (TDP) leaders through a teleconference, Naidu said: "Tomorrow is a dark day". They have done all injustice to the state, destroyed the systems and ruined the country.

Speaking to ANI, he said: "We have raised questions on how Naidu's government is misusing the police department and requested the removal of few officers from election duty".

Elaborate security arrangements had been made in and around the Gannavaram airport in the wake of the call given by the Chief Minister for protests against the Prime Minister's visit. He later flew in s helicopter to Guntur where he will launch the projects and address the rally.

Protests were also organised Saturday in some parts of the state against the visit.

The Andhra Pradesh unit of the BJP has accused the TDP government of trying to sabotage Modi's rally by putting up several hurdles including forcing private transporters and college managements to refuse to provide vehicles for transporting people for the rally. In Vijayawada, the CPI and the CPI-M organised a demonstration Saturday protesting Modi's visit.
