Modi reaches Kerala on 2-day visit, CM Oommen Chandy recieves him at airport

Despite ongoing controversy over the invitation, Prime Minister Narendra Modi reached Kerala on a 2-day visit on Monday. Modi was recieved by Chief Minister Oommen Chandy at airport. 

On Tuesday, Modi is scheduled to unveil a statue of former state CM R Shankar at a programme organised by Sree Narayana Dharma Paripalana Yogam (SNDP) at Kollam. 

There was a controversy on Monday after Chandy, in a press note,  stated that he was "deeply saddened" for being kept away from the function following a request of Vellappally Natesan.

He had said that though he should have been present at the function being attended by the PM and also because Sankar was a former CM and Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee chief, he was forced to take the decision to stay away, following the organiser's request.
