Imphal, April 1 (IANS) Prime Minister Narendra Modi will embark on a one-day visit to Imphal on April 7 to campaign for the BJP in Manipur for the coming Lok Sabha polls, party sources said on Monday.
The Bharatiya Janata Party is contesting both the Lok Sabha seats in the state.
This will be Modi’s second visit to the state ahead of the elections and party sources said that there were no prior plans for the April 7 trip.
Authorities have already beefed up security in and around the state capital.
Meanwhile, Manipur Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) President Gaikhangam told IANS that there were no immediate plans for a second visit to the state by party chief Rahul Gandhi.
“Since the Congress will win both the seats, there is hardly any need for another mammoth public meeting,” Gaikhangam added.
Gandhi was in Manipur last month to campaign for the Congress.
