Punjab: Prime Minister Narendra Modi to address rally in Gurdaspur

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday will address a public rally in Gurdaspur, Punjab, amid tight security.

Narendra Modi’s rally will kickstart the election campaign for the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD)-Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) alliance in Punjab.

He will address the rally at the PUDA ground in Gurdaspur.

After addressing the rally, Modi will go to Jalandhar to inaugurate the 106th session of the Indian Science Congress at the Lovely Professional University (LPU).

The SAD-BJP alliance lost the February 2017 assembly elections in Punjab after remaining in power in the state for 10 years.

The Congress has been in power in the state since March 2017.
