Modi arrived at MIA via an Indian Air Force special flight at 9.45 am and later proceeded to Kasaragod by helicopter for the election campaign.

After campaigning, Modi returned to Delhi on the same flight.

Former district minister in-charge Krishna J Palemar, Nagaraj Shetty, former MLA Yogish Bhat, Ganesh Rao deputy mayor Sumithra and others were also present. Neither the district minister in-charge nor any other Congress leaders were present at the airport to welcome Modi.


  1. Yeah yeah. District minister dollu hotte was busy digging the well and Poojary was busy doing urulu seve for the salaamat e Sonia project.

  2. Elected leaders snubbing Prime Minister of India shows how communal-minded Kaangress party and its voters have become!! They have all the time in world to attend every apartment inauguration, kabbadi tournament and kori-katta!! But, they can’t find an ounce of honesty and desha prema to welcome India’s top elected leader and show some respect. This is the result of decades-long minority worshiping and sanaathana-dhwesha practiced in southa canara region!! Who needs enemies when we have these guys? Sad and embarrassing.

  3. It is ok if elected leaders from Cong I were not present as the PM was here on his election campaign. I would have condemned the snubbing if he was here on some development works or project like shanku sthapane, udghatane, swachata, announcement of schemes and the like. Probably the elected leaders have nothing to convey or request the PM on behalf of the people they represent!!!

  4. Duplicate
    Better read & understand if you can before commenting. He came for campaigning. If it was other countries he would have been billed for using taxpayers sponsored flight & airport.
