Prime Minister Modi will hold a public meeting and flag off the 900th coach and a Humsafar rake from the rail coach factory from Rae Bareli, an official said here. According to district officials, the prime minister will lay the foundation stone and inaugurate projects worth Rs 1,100 crore during the visit.
