The PM was accorded a grand welcome when he landed in Ahmedabad on Friday night.
Gujarat Governor OP Kohli, Chief Minister Vijay Rupani, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLAs all were present at the airport to welcome the top BJP leader.
PM Modi spent the night at Raj Bhavan in Gandhinagar.
Later, he would go to the tribal district of Dahod to inaugurate various irrigations projects.
Dahod collector Lalit Padaliya said the inauguration ceremony will be held at Limkheda town, around 25 km from the city, and the PM will also address a rally there.
"The Prime Minister will inaugurate Kadana-Hafeshwar irrigation project," Padaliya said.
Later in the afternoon he would go to Navsari where he is scheduled to take part in a function where aid would be distributed to the differently-abled persons.
"In Navsari, PM will distribute kits and aid to 'divyang' citizens. He will also address a large gathering near Navsari town," Pandya said.
BJP is facing a challenge in Gujarat ahead of next year's polls in the aftermath of Patel quota agitation and the protests of Dalit community after the Una atrocity incident.
Last month Modi visited his home state twice -- to condole the death of Sawminarayan sect's leader Pramukhswami Maharaj and later to inaugurate an irrigation scheme in Saruashtra region.
