Over 75 lakh users had tweeted with #gobackamitshah by Monday noon. However, the trend was replaced by less popular hashtags shortly after.Shah reached the city around noon. Entrepreneur CK Kumaravel tweeted, “TN seems to be the Waterloo. Let the people of the country think TN people are mad, outcaste, even terrorists. But we have self-respect & eat with salt from Tuticorin.

Try Tuticorin salt bros, they are tasty & improves self-esteem too. #GoBackAmithShah”
Boopathy Narendran tweeted,” We welcome all workers from North, East, North- East, Nepal people. But you are not welcomed here! #GoBackAmitShah”Pirai Kannan tweeted, “Arun, Aarif, Agustin. We are all brothers & living united. This is not place for Religious Separatist’s like @AmitShah & @narendramodi #GoBackAmitShah #GetOutAmitShah”

The BJP president is in Chennai to brainstorm for the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.
