Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Nizamabad in Telangana on Tuesday to inaugurate a slew of development projects worth over Rs 8,000 crores and address a public meeting organised by the BJP.
His visit comes two days after he addressed a rally in Mahabubnagar, marking the launch of BJP’s campaign for the upcoming assembly polls.
Nizamabad assumes political significance as Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao’s daughter and sitting BRS MLC K Kavitha is expected to contest from the constituency in the 2024 Parliament elections again.
She lost to incumbent BJP MP from Nizamabad D Arvind in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
