"We are expecting a good percentage of tribal voters in the rallies. We will be welcoming Modi in the traditional way. This is Modi’s first political rally in Tripura for the Assembly polls. In 2013, BJP’s star campaigner was Rajnath Singh. This time, all political heavyweights are campaigning in the state, which is a big thing for us,” News18 quoted BJP spokesperson Mrinal Kanti Deb as saying.

The India-Bangladesh border adjoining Sipahijala and Unakoti districts has been sealed in view of Modi's visit, the police said.

The prime minister will address two public rallies near border areas, programme manager and Deputy Speaker of Assam Assembly Biswarup Bhattacharya had said.

Giving details of Modi's itinerary, he said the prime minister is scheduled to arrive at Agartala airport in a chartered plane, and from there, he would fly to Sonamura of Sipahijala district in an IAF helicopter.

A public rally has been organised at Rangamati Madrassa school ground in Sipahijala, Bhattacharya said.

According to Sipahijala SP Sudipta Das, the BSF has been asked to seal the frontier as the place is not very far from the international border.

"A security blanket has been thrown around the district with central and state paramilitary forces deployed at strategic points," Das said.

After the rally at Siphijala, Modi would go to Kailashahar in Unakoti district, Bhattacharya said, adding the prime minister would address a public meet at Ramkrishna Mahavidyalaya stadium in the second half of the day.

The security forces have been asked to intensify patrolling in the district and adequate measures have been taken to thwart untoward incidents, Unakoti SP Ajit Pratap Singh said.

Tripura is set to go to polls on 18 February and the results will be announced on 3 March.
