Several checkpoints have come up across Srinagar as part of heightened security measures, a day ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s scheduled visit to the city on Thursday, his first since the abrogation of Article 370 in August 2019, soon after his government returned to power for a second term.

The PM, who was in Jammu last week, is likely to address a public rally at Bakshi Stadium and announce a slew of projects related to agriculture and tourism. The meeting, whose venue was shifted from the Sher-e-Kashmir International Conference Centre (SKICC), is likely to be attended by around two lakh people, including government officials, BJP workers and locals.
