Miliband visited a number of villages and saw literacy programmes, dairy development activities and also interacted with the media at Indira Gandhi Eye Hospital before leaving the guest house for the night stay.
Their programme was kept as a closely guarded secret by local Congress men to avoid media rush which they felt might come in the way of the two leaders freely mingling with villagers.
