On his maiden visit to Puducherry after assuming office, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will participate in the golden jubilee celebrations of Auroville International township at neighbouring Villupuram district tomorrow. Arriving by a special flight at 10.40 am, Modi would first visit the Aurobindo Ashram here and pay homage to its founder spiritual leader Sri Aurobindo. Modi will also visit the room where Aurobindo carried out his spiritual experiments, sources in the Ashram said. Later, the Prime Minister would interact with children of Sri Aurobindo International School of Education and then proceed to Auroville by road to participate in its golden jubilee celebrations.

After spending nearly two hours in Auroville, he will return to Puducherry to address a public meeting organised by BJP’s local unit. The international or universal project envisioned by the Mother of Aurobindo Ashram (Mirra Alfassa) is dedicated to the ideal of human unity. Modi was earlier scheduled to visit Puducherry on February 24.

Festoons, banners and lotus flags have been erected along the route which the Prime Minister would take. Security has been beefed up at all places in view of Modi’s visit.
