IB's special director and head of counter-terror operations Tapan Deka is already campaigning in Srinagar to personally take stock of the security preparedness. The Prime Minister's visit to Jammu coincides with the 'Panchayat Raj Diwas' and he is likely to interact with at least 700 panchayat representatives from across the country through a virtual conference. While Prime Minister's programme has been limited to Jammu, the security grid wants to rule out any terror-related incidents in the run-up to the visit.
