SRINAGAR: Dozens of flood affected people who came to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his day-long Diwali visit Thursday returned disappointed as they were not allowed to enter Raj Bhavan where Modi was scheduled to meet them.

"We had heard on radio and television that the Prime Minister would meet flood victims at Raj Bhavan. Following that announcement, we walked to the meet the Prime Minister since there was no public transport in the city because of a separatist shutdown," said one of the people who walked to Raj Bhavan.

"We were not allowed to go inside Raj Bhavan. Some people told us the list of those meeting the Prime Minister had already been finalised," said the disappointed man, a flood victim who wanted to meet Modi.
