NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi's rally in Ferozepur today, where he was scheduled to inaugurate multiple projects worth Rs 42,750 crore, was cancelled following a "security breach".

Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya, who arrived at the venue of the public meeting in Ferozepur, announced from the stage that the prime minister would not be able to address the gathering "due to some reasons".

The prime minister, after landing in Bathinda earlier in the day, was scheduled to take the aerial route for Ferozepur. However, due to the rough weather, he decided to travel by road, the MHA said in a statement.

"It is sad that the PM’s visit to launch development projects worth thousands of crores for Punjab was disrupted. But we will not let such cheap mentality hinder progress of Punjab and will continue the effort for the development of Punjab," BJP president JP Nadda tweeted.

"To make matters worse, CM Channi refused to get on the phone to either address the matter or solve it. The tactics used by the Congress government in Punjab would pain anyone who believes in democratic principles," Naddal further alleged.
