The Prime Minister is scheduled to inaugurate a gas cracker project at Lepetkata in Dibrugarh district and address a public rally at Moran.

Later, he will attend the 85th convention of the Srimanta Sankar Sangha, a prominent religious-cultural body, in Sivasagar district. PM Modi will also inaugurate the 12th South Asian Games in Guwahati before leaving for Delhi.

The gas cracker project, executed by the Brahmaputra Crackers and Polymers Ltd, has missed several deadlines.  Envisaged by then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in 1984, it was given shape by her son Rajiv Gandhi when he became Prime Minister. Then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had laid the foundation for the Rs 10,000 crore project at Lepetkata in 2007.
