In Arunachal Pradesh, he will participate in three programmes, including the inauguration of the Dorjee Khandu state convention centre in Itanagar.

He will also dedicate the state civil secretariat building and lay the foundation stone of the academic block of the Tomo Riba Institute of Health and Medical Science.

From Arunachal Pradesh, Modi will proceed to Tripura where he will address two election rallies in Shanti Bazaar and Agartala.

On Wednesday, Tripura BJP chief Biplab Deb said the Modi government will act like a "father figure" to help the poor state stand on its feet and fulfil the partys campaign promises, if the party comes to power.

He accused the Left Front of running a "Sarkar's sarkar" — a reference to Chief Minister Manik Sarkar — and not people's sarkar (government), leading to high unemployment rate and lack of development.

Expressing confidence that his party would win the election, Deb told PTI that a BJP government would make the state self-reliant in five years.

Though the BJP has not announced a chief ministerial candidate, the youthful Deb (46) is seen by many as its likely choice for the top post if it gets better of the CPM, which has been in power in the tiny northeastern state for 25 years, in the elections scheduled for 18 February.
