Modi was forced to sit inside his Indian Air Force aircraft for one lone hour even after landing at the Chennai airport at 12 pm on Tuesday. From there he was supposed to go to INS Adyar in a helicopter but unfortunately it did not have enough fuel in it. From Adyar, Modi was supposed to travel to Rajaji Hall in his convoy by road.
