Kerala's Northern district Kozhikode has been put under heavy security ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's two-day visit to the city on Saturday evening.
In addition to Special Protection Group commandos, over 3,000 policemen have been deployed to keep the extra vigil.
Prime Minister will fly down to Karipur Airport in the afternoon, from here he will be flown to Kozhikode beach where he will address a public rally at five in the evening. Since it is his first public address after the deadly 'Uri attack' Prime Minister's speech is thought to be his response to the terror attack and ongoing Jammu and Kashmir unrest.
On Friday, while briefing the media BJP General Secretary Ram Madhav had hinted that the terror attack on an army camp at Uri in which 18 soldiers were killed would be a key point deliberated in the Council meet.
Soon after the terror strike at Uri on September 18, Prime Minister had in a tweet condemned the attack and said, "those behind this despicable attack will not go unpunished". Though many other ministers had directly blamed Pakistan for sponsoring terror and pay the country in the same coin, Narendra Modi had refrained from making further statements.
