New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today met two students of Odisha’s Kendrapara district, who had covered more than 1600 km on bicycles to reach New Delhi.
Krishnakant Sarangi, an engineering student, and Subhrajit Barik, a zoology student, were accompanied by Kendrapara MP Anubhav Mohanty during their meeting with the PM.
The two had reached the national capital on bicycles and expressed wish to meet President Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Narendra Modi over Mahanadi river water dispute and plight of Odisha farmers who are suffering due to the construction of barrages on the river in Chhattisgarh.
