Officials of various departments are making preparations to receive President Ram Nath Kovind in Belagavi on September 15.

He will be inaugurating the yearlong platinum jubilee celebrations of Karnatak Law Society in the city.

Officials of the Public Works Department and city corporation are repairing around 25 km of the road between Sambra airport and Gogte Institute of technology, the venue of the event.

Security has been increased all around the city.

The Rashtrapati Bhavan is yet to respond to suggestions that the President fly from Sambra airport to the venue by helicopter. The tentative tour plan says he will drive to the venue, an officer said.
