While Manmohan Singh will be in Sriharikota in Nellore district to witness the launch of PSLV-C 21 on Sunday, Pranab Mukherjee will be in Tirumala to have a darshan of Lord Balaji and inaugurate Nandakam complex of Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams the same day.

Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy will shuttle between the two Rayalaseema districts and meet both the VVIPs.

Kiran will reach Sriharikota High Altitude Range (SHAR) by helicopter on Saturday to receive the Prime Minister at 5.30 pm.

Kiran will later reach Renigunta airport and receive the President and have dinner with him. In his first visit to the state in his capacity as President, Mukherjee will have a darshan of Balaji at 7.10 am and inaugurate the complex at 10.25 am.

The Prime Minister will address the scientists of SHAR and both, the President and the Prime Minister, will leave the state on Sunday.
