Lucknow: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will today address a public rally in Uttar Pradesh's Saharanpur.

An official said that all security and other arrangements have been completed for Modi's visit.

This will be Modi's first public rally in Uttar Pradesh after the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.

Senior BJP leaders from the state have also reached Saharanpur to welcome the Prime Minister. Kairana MP Hukum Singh, Saharanpur MP Raghav Lakhanpal Sharma, BJP's legislator from the city Rajiv Gumber and other state functionaries will welcome Modi.

After a brief stopover in Saharanpur, the Prime Minister will fly to neighbouring Uttarakhand, where he would call on his ailing guru Swami Dayanand Giri at Shishamjhadi in Rishikesh.

He will then fly to Chandigarh where he has other engagements.

Teams of intelligence and anti-terrorist squad (ATS) have fanned out in the region to keep an eye on anti-social elements and the area near Sarurpur Gada on Ambala road where the Prime Minister will be addressing the rally has been sanitized by the Special Protection Group (SPG).
