Upon arriving in the city, the PM drove straight to the residence of Sushil Kumar Modi, a senior BJP leader who died last week battling cancer.

After condoling the bereaved family members, the PM reached the BJP's state headquarters to hold deliberations with party workers ahead of the last couple of phases of polls.
