Go Back Modi: Protesting SFI activists carry posters against PM's Kolkata visit

Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in Kolkata, West Bengal on Saturday for a two-day tour of the state. Students organisation Students Federation of India (SFI) has opposed PM Modi's visit to Kolkata.

Before PM Modi's visit, two organisations have planned protests at Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport and on the roads.

Hundreds of protesters staged protest outside Kolkata airport and various parts of the state on Satruday against Prime Minister Narendra Modi's scheduled visit to Kolkata during the day.

Youth Congress activists assembled outside Kolkata airport and shouted slogans against Modi demanding that he should not be allowed to land in Kolkata.

SFI activists assembled near Jadavpur University, Golpark, College Street, Hatibagan and Esplanade with placards which read 'Students Against Fascism.'

PM Modi tweeted before the tour, "I am happy and excited that I will spend today and tomorrow in West Bengal. I will be fortunate to visit my Ramakrishna Mission at the holy time of Swami Vivekananda Jan Jayanti. Belur monastery has always been a prominent place."
