With the campaign for Lok Sabha and Assembly elections in Odisha picking up, central leaders of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) are descending on the state to woo the voters in favour of their party candidates.
Odisha is one of the key eastern states where the saffron party has placed high hopes on making significant gains. The Lok Sabha and Assembly elections are being held simultaneously in the state in four phases.
Modi will hold a roadshow from the Biju Patnaik International Airport (BPIA) to the meeting venue via Siripur Square, Mohanty said.
Both Bhubaneswar and Sambalpur parliamentary constituencies will go to the polls in the third phase on April 23.
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath will hit the election campaign trail in Odisha on Monday. During his one-day visit to the state, Yogi will attend public rallies in Rourkela, Angul and Phulbani, said BJP spokesperson Golak Mohapatra.
The Chief Minister will campaign in Bargarh and Bolangir districts on April 15 with a night stay scheduled at Bargarh. On April 16, he will visit his second assembly constituency of Bijepur, where he is scheduled to hold public meetings.
Patnaik is contesting from the Hinjili and the Bijepur Assembly constituencies, both of which will vote in the second phase on April 18.
