Talking to IANS, Additional District Magistrate O.P. Bishnoi said the administration is making security arrangements for Modi's expected visit. However, he added that confirmation of the Prime Minister's visit is yet to come.

Modi is also likely to visit Jhunjhunu in Rajasthan at the end of January or in the first week of February.
