Modi is scheduled to address the first rally at Ambassa in Dhalai district around noon, and the second at Gomati, which is likely to start at 3 pm, the party’s state media-in-charge Sunit Sarkar said.
The prime minister is likely to visit Tripura again on February 13, Sarkar added.
Elections to the 60-member assembly will be held on February 16.
Security has been beefed up across the state given the PM's visit on Saturday, a police officer said.
