Prime Minister Narendra Modi Saturday reached here on a two-day visit during which he will pay obeisance in the Himalayan shrines of Kedarnath and Badrinath. The prime minister's visit to Uttarakhand comes a day after campaigning for the general election came to a close.

He reached Jolly Grant airport this morning. Stringent security arrangements have been made for the prime minister's visit, DGP (law and order) Ashok Kumar said. While Modi will visit Kedarnath on Saturday, he will offer prayers at Badrinath on Sunday.

The portals of both the shrines were reopened for devotees after winter break early this month.
