Udaipur : Ahead of Narendra Modi’s proposed visit to Udaipur on Aug 29, Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje made a short visit to the city on Sunday noon to supervise the arrangements and ensure a grand welcome to the PM.
Raje was greeted by the authorities, Home Minister Gulabchand Kataria, cabinet ministers Yunus Khan, Srichand Kriplani and Kiran Maheshwari up on her arrival at the Dabok airport. Raje headed straight to Khel Gaon ground at ChitrakootNagar to inspect the preparations where a massive rally is proposed on the PM’s visit. Raje later presided over a meeting with the BJP leaders and discussed at length the arrangements for the program. She also imparted instructions to authorities including the divisional commissioner, collector and police officers. She reviewed the helipad construction work near the ground, took details of the route map, traffic management and stay arrangements for the guests expected on the occasion. Raje flew to New Delhi later afternoon. BJP state president Ashok Parnami too held a meeting with the party leaders and asked them to leave no stone unturned to make Modi’s visit a grand event. “
The program would be such that if a congress supporter happens to participate, he would be tempted to join the BJP” Parnami said while speaking to the media. Modi’s visit is being seen as a grand affair as the Prime Minister is expected to launch various projects across the state from Udaipur. “ The PM would announce and inaugurate projects worth 30 thousand crores in the state” Parnami said. There are some odd 17 national and state highway projects that may be launched and inaugurated by the PM while he may also open various housing and development related works in various cities by remote button, sources claimed. Modi may also visit the Pratap Gaurav Kendra at Tiger Hill, BJP sources said.
