The release said that later in the day, the Prime Minister would unveil a plaque to mark the laying of foundation stone of the Rail Coach Refurbishing Karkhana in Sonepat at a public meeting. “Once complete, this would be a major repair and maintenance facility for rail coaches in the northern region. It is being set up using modular and prefabricated construction techniques, modern machinery, and environment-friendly features,” it said.

Meanwhile, amid speculation of an alliance between the AIADMK and the BJP for the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister EK Palaniswami paid a visit to PM Modi on Monday. Media reports had suggested the meeting could pave the way for an electoral understanding between the AIADMK and the BJP in the state.

In Delhi, ahead of the meeting, Palaniswami said, “We will decide on alliance once the poll dates are announced.” The Times of India pointed out that the meeting also gained significance as neither the CM nor his deputy could get an audience with PM Modi in Delhi for well over a year.
