Elaborate security arrangements have been made for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s rally in Muzaffarpur on Tuesday.

The PM will address a rally at Patahi airstrip to garner support for support for NDA nominees from Muzaffarpur and Vaishali Lok Sabha constituencies, Ajay Nishad of the BJP and Veena Devi of the LJP, respectively.

Chief minister Nitish Kumar and deputy chief minister Sushil Kumar Modi will also attend the rally.

This will be the sixth rally in Bihar to be addressed by the prime minister since this Lok Sabha poll campaign began. In his five election meetings held so far, two were in favour of JD(U) candidates, one for LJP and two for BJP.
