All police stations in these districts have been put on maximum alert, police sources said.
During his two-day electioneering, Advani will address 15 public meetings in the state.
Chief Secretary K A H Subramanian met state officials to review the security.
The People's War and Maoist Communist Centre have threatened to disrupt the yatra in Bihar.
The BJP, too, has prepared for Advani's security and warned Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Laloo Prasad Yadav against stopping the yatra.
Yadav had ordered Advani's arrest during the 1990 Rath Yatra to Ayodhya.
