Manmohan to visit Assam on Monday

GUWAHATI: Security has been stepped up across the city in view of a two-day visit of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh beginning on Monday. Policing in and around the city and at all the venues where the Prime Minister is scheduled to visit has been geared up, official sources said on Friday.

Dr. Singh is expected to lay a foundation stone of the Power Plant at Salakati near Kokrajhar on Monday and then move to Margherita next day to open the coalfields. The coalfield would supply raw materials to the power plant. He will open an indoor stadium, the first of the seven stadia that are being built for the next national games. - UNI
