IANS  |  Shillong 

Prime Minister Modi will visit Meghalaya, where elections are due early next year, on December 16 to launch the campaign and inaugurate a party office in the state.

Home Minister Rajnath Singh was supposed to inaugurate the office here on Thursday but he cancelled his visit.

"Modi will spearhead the election campaign on December 16 at Polo Ground. His campaign will boost the party's prospects in the state," state President Shibun Lyngdoh told IANS.

The Congress-led United Alliance government has been in power for two consecutive terms.

The BJP, which had no presence in the assembly, hopes to win 40 of the 60 seats in the Assembly.
