He said party workers are extremely enthusiastic about the prime minister's proposed visit, with meetings being held at the district and ward levels to assess the preparations for the rally.
BJP national president JP Nadda had also reviewed the preparations for the rally a couple of days back, he said.
Cabinet Minister Dhan Singh Rawat, Pradesh BJP president Madan Kaushik, IG Intelligence Sanjay Gunjyal, District Magistrate R Rajesh Kumar and SSP Janmejay Khanduri accompanied Dhami to the Parade Ground.
Earlier, Modi visited Rishikesh on 4 October to inaugurate an oxygen plant at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences and visited Kedarnath on 5 November to unveil the statue of Adi Guru Shankaracharya.
Assembly polls in Uttarakhand are due early next year.
