The hashtag #GobackAmitShah has started trending nationally on Twitter following the arrival of the President of the Bharatiya Janata Party, Amit Shah, in Chennai. Amit Shah's visit is aimed at preparing the state unit for the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.

Amit Shah's visit comes at a time when the State has been witnessing a series of protests - from anti-Sterlite protests to the protests against the Chennai-Salem Highway project.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, too, faced similar opposition when he came to Chennai a few months ago to inaugurate the Defence Expo. At that time #GobackModi trended on Twitter.

Jothimani (@jothims), a Congress activist, tweeted: Tamil Nadu is a land of self-respect, unity, courage and progressive. We will not let you to divide people with your poisonous divisive propaganda.We will not let you to take us back to stone age with your fundamentalist views #GobackAmitShah

 

On the other side, pro-BJP activists accused the party of not anticipating the trend and doing something to counter it.

Ramesh Sethu (@rameshsethu) tweeted:

BJP president @AmitShah boarded the flight to Chennai and is about to arrive. Already #gobackAmitShah started trending. While the @BJPtnITcell is useless, I'm surprised @BJP4India IT cell head @amitmalviya is sleeping. And they dream of coming to power in TN.
