Bhubaneswar, Feb 6: Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s proposed visit to Odisha on February 10 has been postponed and the new date is likely to be decided in the third week of February.
The February 10 programme has been cancelled due to BJP’s national council meeting on February 16 followed by a two-day national executive committee meeting on February 17 and 18 in New Delhi, said party sources.
Though February 21 or 22 are tentative dates of his visit to attend the convention, nothing has been finalised, said a veteran BJP leader.
Notably, Prime Minister Narendra Modi was scheduled to address a mega women’s convention in Bhubaneswar on February 10 as part of its women’s outreach programme organised by the BJP Mahila Morcha ahead of the general election likely to be held between April and May.
The PM visited Sambalpur on February 3 where he inaugurated the new campus of Indian Institute of Management (IIM) along with laying foundation stone of several developmental projects.
