Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address a rally in Dehradun on December 4 and lay the groundwork for a total of Rs 30,000 crore worth of development projects.
This is Prime Minister Modi’s third visit to Uttarakhand in the three months to elections.
Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Tami, who visited the parade ground on Monday, said the Prime Minister would lay the foundation stone for projects worth Rs 26,000 crore and launch projects worth Rs 4,000 crore to assess the arrangements.
He said party volunteers were keen on the Prime Minister’s proposed visit and meetings would be held at the district and ward levels to assess preparations for the rally.
BJP national leader JP Natta also inspected the preparations for the rally two days ago.
Cabinet Minister Tan Singh Rawat, Pradesh BJP leader Madan Kaushik, Intelligence IG Sanjay Kunyal, District Magistrate R Rajesh Kumar and SSP Janmejay Kanthuri accompanied Mr Thami to the rally ground.
Earlier, Prime Minister Modi, who arrived in Rishikesh on October 4 to inaugurate the oxygen plant at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, left for Kedarnath on November 5 to unveil the statue of Adi Guru Sankaracharya.
Uttarakhand is scheduled to hold assembly elections early next year.
