Chennai: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday faced a silent protest by some 30 students dressed in black and carrying posters when he visited the IIT Madras.

Modi, who flew from one venue to another to avoid the threatened black flag protests over the Cauvery issue, could not escape it at the Indian Institute of Technology.

The Prime Minister walked a few steps from the helicopter into the car that ferried him to the Adyar Cancer Institute.

As he did so, he encountered the student protesters who stood silently but held posters demanding a Cauvery Management Board as ordered by the Supreme Court -- an issue which has whipped up emotions in Tamil Nadu.
