Around 50 stages will be erected on the roadside along the stretch and people from different states of the country will welcome Netanyahu.

Almost 50,000 people are expected to be present during the roadshow. 

Security deployments are all in place ahead of the roadshow to be held jointly by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu.
