Modi will arrive around 1.30 pm in Pune where the city BJP has made hurried arrangements for a short rally outside the airport.

"He is coming to inaugurate a new wing at the Deenanath Mangeshkar Super Speciality Hospital here. Prior to that function, we have half an hour for him to address party workers," city BJP chief Anil Shirole said.

An advance team of the Gujarat Police along with the Maharashtra Police has arrived in the city to oversee the security preparations.

Modi will be received by Maharashtra BJP chief Devendra Fadnavis who will also attend the rally. However, no other state party leader is expected, Shirole said.
