As the street lights on the road near the airport were not working when Union Minister Amit Shah was leaving the airport for his hotel in Guindy, a group of BJP cadres staged a protest, accusing the State government of deliberately turning off the lights.
Tamil Nadu BJP State Vice President Karu Nagarajan, while speaking to ANI said that the incident shows a "security lapse" that should be seriously investigated.
"This has to be investigated. How can there be a sudden power failure when our leader and Union Home Minister Amit Shah reached Chennai airport? This is a security lapse. This should be seriously investigated," Karu Nagarajan said.
Shah landed in Chennai on Saturday night as part of his two-day visit to Gujarat, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, and Andhra Pradesh.
His visit is part of the BJP's month-long campaign to take the achievements of the Narendra Modi government of nine years to the masses.
He is scheduled to attend a meeting of party workers from the Chennai South Parliamentary constituency on Sunday morning.
He will later address a public meeting in Pallikonda near Vellore in the afternoon and leave for Andhra Pradesh in the evening.
In Andhra, Shah will address a public meeting on Sunday evening at the railway ground in Vizag.
The occasion marks the completion of nine years of BJP rule at the centre.(ANI)
