Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be on a one-day visit to Gujarat on Thursday for inaugurating a series of schemes and addressing a public meeting in the state.

PM Modi will attend four functions, including the convocation of the Gujarat Forensic Science University and a meeting of the Somnath temple trust in Gandhinagar’s Raj Bhavan. The Prime Minister will address a public meeting at the Police Training College ground near Junagadh.

Modi will arrive in Gujarat on Thursday morning and address a public meeting in Jujwa village near Valsad town, where he will attend the collective e-griha pravesh (online house warming) of beneficiaries of the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (gramin), an official release said.

From the same venue, Modi would perform the ground-breaking ceremony of a water supply project meant for the tribal population in Dharampur and Kaprada talukas.

After the event in Valsad, the prime minister would go to Junagadh town in Saurashtra to inaugurate various projects, including a newly-built hospital of the Gujarat Medical and Education Research Society and two fisheries colleges at Veraval town in the Gir Somnath district, another official said.

Later, he will preside over the convocation ceremony of the Gujarat Forensic Science University in Gandhinagar and before leaving for Delhi, he will attend the meeting of the Somnath temple trust in the evening.

Before leaving for New Delhi, PM Modi is also expected to hold a meeting of state-level BJP leaders to possibly discuss strategies for the 2019 Lok Sabha election, news agency IANS reported.

In 2014 general election, the BJP had won all the 26 parliamentary seats from Gujarat.
