Prime Minister Narendra Modi lashed out at the Congress on Sunday during his address to the gathering at Dashamah Soundarya Lahari Parayanotsava Mahasarmapane. Referring to former finance minister P Chidambaram’s remarks on Saturday regarding greater autonomy for J&K, Modi said Congress leaders supporting those seeking ‘Azadi’ in Kashmir was an insult to our soldiers.

The PM will also launch digital cashless Self-Help Groups (SHG) transactions.

The PM tweeted on Saturday, “The Soundarya Lahari is a set of shlokas composed by Adi Shankaracharya. The event has been organized for the mass chanting of these shlokas in unison.”

The PM is also scheduled to inaugurate the newly constructed 110-km-long Bidar-Kalaburagi railway line, the newly constructed track will reduce the distance between Bengaluru and New Delhi by over 350 km and travel time by six to eight hours. The PM will also address a public gathering on the occasion.

An official speaking to news agency IANS said, “The Prime Minister has a busy day, as he is scheduled to participate in seven-eight functions at three places across the state.”
