Pitching for making Narendra Modi the Prime Minister (PM), a newly formed 'apolitical' organisation of youths NaMo Peravai (NaMo Movement) has planned to name 200 tea stalls in Tamil Nadu after the Gujarat Chief Minister.

Announcing this, movement Coordinator Praveen Srinivasan told reporters here today that one such tea stall had already been opened in Chittore in Erode District and another seven were ready to function in the city.

He said the movement had been formed by youth and like-minded individuals without affiliation to any political party.

It would conduct meetings across the state, including remote areas, to highlight the need for Narendra Modi becoming the Prime Minister, he said.

With good response from tea stall owners, many provision stores had also come forward to name their stores after Narendra Modi, since they also wanted a change of guard, Praveen claimed.

The movement would also release a CD of a song titled 'NaMo Geetham', on Sunday in the city, where senior BJP leaders from Tamil Nadu are expected to participate.

The movement members were from a cross section of fields, including IT, students, traders and businessmen, Praveen said.
