PM Modi has a packed schedule and will spend most part of the day in Gujarat. His schedule includes a visit to the Sardar Sarovar Dam on the Narmada river, whose water level has reached its highest mark for the first time, to kickoff the "Namami Narmade" festival. For the first time since the height of the Sarovar dam was raised in 2017, the water level reached its highest peak at 138.68 metres on Sunday evening. The dam was inaugurated by PM Modi on this day in 2017.
After visiting the dam site at Kevadiya, the Prime Minister would address a gathering. After his address, the PM would inspect some ongoing developmental projects near the dam and the Statue of Unity. He is also expected to visit the temple of Lord Dattatreya at Garudeshwar village near Kevadiya. On his 68th birthday last year, Modi was in his Lok Sabha constituency of Varanasi with school children. He visited a primary school and celebrated his birthday with students. He later offered prayers at the Kashi Vishwanath temple there.
