He will unveil the plaque inaugurating the diamond jubilee building, palliative care centre (Mahvir Ashray) at Sriperumbudur, Day care center and nurses quarter at the Adyar Cancer Institute.

Soon after Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that over 8.5 lakh toilets were constructed in Bihar in a week, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tejashwi Yadav questioned the claim calling it a big "goof-up". He asked BJP leaders to hold fast in their respective constituencies and urge people to join them in the mission to expose "people who have destroyed democracy" by not allowing the Parliament to function.

The protests were mainly staged by opposition parties in the parliament over a range of issues which includes Punjab National Bank scam, Cauvery river water, special status for Andhra Pradesh. "I will be fasting".

Praising Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, PM Narendra pledged to fulfil Mahatma Gandhi's sanitation dream. "Fasting is not going to stop him from coming here", Sitharaman said, after opening the DefExpo 2018 that showcases India's capability to manufacture arms and weapons platform systems.

SANA first said the missile strike on the Tayfur base was a "suspected USA attack", but later withdrew all reference to America. US government sources said Washington's assessment of the Saturday attack was that chemical weapons were used.

But the PM will not disturb his daily official routine; he will continue meeting people and officials and clearing files as scheduled, sources said.

Now, Modi has also accused the opposition, especially Congress, of practicing divisive politics and causing chaos. "Three years ago, the NDA government started work on the project and have now completed the first phase", he said. It said that Prime Minister should instead apologise to the youth, Dalits and other sections of the society, who were allegedly let down by his government. The ruling BJP has blamed the Opposition, led by the Congress party, for the washout of the Budget Session.

This announcement comes a day after Congress President Rahul Gandhi led a fast against the government.
