Government sources said the prime minister would first arrive at the Siachen Glacier to celebrate Diwali with the soldiers guarding the world's highest battlefield for the country.

The prime minister will then leave for Srinagar to meet the flood-affected people at the Raj Bhawan.

"He will also meet delegations of local traders and members of the civil society," a source said.

"He is scheduled to visit a relief camp besides visiting places badly hit by the floods in the city," the source added.

Modi is expected to announce a special package for the victims of the floods that had ravaged the state in September.
