Patna: Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi will address public meetings in Muzaffarpur on March three and in Purnia a week later, party's Bihar unit president said today.

Modi's Muzaffarpur rally will be held at the Police Line ground on March three in which lakhs of party leaders and workers are likely to attend, BJP state unit president Mangal Pandey told PTI.

In view of inadequacy of the venue made available for the BJP prime ministerial candidate's meeting in Muzaffarpur, Pandey said the BJP has asked the district administration to allot both residential and training ground at the police lines to accommodate an expected huge turn out.

The Gujarat Chief Minister will address another public meeting at the Ranbhoomi Ground in Purnia which has a capacity to accommodate 1.5 to two lakh people, he said adding that the district administration has been approached to allot the venue.

Modi's rally in Purnia assumes significance in view of the district and adjoining areas having a large population of the minority community.

Modi was likely to attend two more rallies in Bihar next month the details of which were in the stage of finalisation, Pandey said.
