Modi will address a ‘Shridhanjali Samaroh’ at Hussainiwala, about 260 km from here and close to the India-Pakistan border.

He is the second prime minister after Rajiv Gandhi, who came in March 1985, to visit Hussainiwala, where preparations are in full swing.

The PM will then visit the Sikh holy city of Amritsar to pray at Harmandar Sahib, the holiest of Sikh shrines and popularly known as the Golden Temple, and at the nearby Durgiana Mandir.
