Change in plan in PM's itinerary; Modi to visit Netaji Bhawan first

Kolkata/UNI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in the Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport on a day-long visit to Kolkata but there has been a change in his itinerary. Now, he will first vist Netaji Bhawan, which is also a research center and archives devoted to the life and work of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose.

PM Modi came to Kolkata to inaugurate a permanent museum on Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose to mark his 124th birth anniversary.

Initially, it was decided that the Prime Minister would fly from NSCB International Airport in an  Air Force Chopper and land at the Race Course. According to this plan, the Prime Minister's convoy was to reach the National Library by road and after that arrive at the Victoria Memorial.

This plan has been changed and the PM will first go to Netaji Bhawan at Elgin Road and spend some time there.

According to police sources, Modi's security had to be redesigned due to the change in his itinerary.

Some of the BJP leaders were also supposed to go with Modi to Netaji Bhawan but it is learned that this, too, has been cancelled due to objection of former Trinamool Congress MP Sugata Bose, who is the great grand nephew of Netaji and director of the Netaji Research Bureau.

The Netaji Bhawan sources confirmed this saying objection was made as the PM's visit wasn't a political tour and theregore political people should not visit.

"Narendra Modi may come to pay his respects to Netaji personally as the Prime Minister of the country," the source stated.

Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar will be with Prime Minister throughout his tour. Firhad Hakim will also be with the Prime Minister throughout his visit in the state.
