Prime Minister Narendra Modi landed in the city on Monday night at 9.50pm, by air from Delhi, to participate in the International Yoga day celebrations at the Capitol Complex on Tuesday morning. He was received by Punjab and Haryana governor, and UT administrator Kaptan Singh Solanki, Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal, Haryana CM Manohar Lal Khattar, and Chandigarh MP Kirron Kher. His night stay was at the Punjab Raj Bhawan at night.
As it rained on Monday evening for about an hour, the UT administration was on its toes to clear the water and take stock of damage at Capitol Complex. UT home secretary Anurag Agarwal said, “We were all ready with arrangements to tackle any kind of situation. Immediately after the rain the workers were pressed into service to clean the entire place.”
