Bhubaneswar, May 11: Election campaigning is going to end on Saturday evening in almost four districts in Odisha as count down for the ‘silence period’ has already begun ahead of the first phase of the General and Assembly elections scheduled on May 13(Monday).

Before the silence period, PM Modi hit the campaign trail for the BJP at Kandhamal, Balangir and Bargarh and addressed people in public meetings. He appealed the people to vote for the safron party and bring in double-engine government.
