Dibrugarh and Diphu: Prime Minister Narendra Modi is on a day-long tour of Assam a couple of days after he tried no less to share the joy of Rongali Bihu at a function in New Delhi organized by Union minister Sarbananda Sonowal.
Modi's day-long visit comprises two big rallies in Diphu and Dibrugarh to open 7 cancer hospitals simultaneously. Towards the evening he is scheduled to leave back to the capital.
Dibrugarh and Karbi Anglong district administrators have already announced a public holiday to allow the common people to attend the events.
