PM Modi to visit Odisha’s Sambalpur on February 3

Bhubaneswar: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will come to Odisha on February 3 on an official tour. This was informed by BJP state unit president Manmohan Samal today.

However, the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) is yet to announce the details of the PM’s tour.

The PM is to inaugurate a permanent campus of the Indian Institute of Management (IIM)-Sambalpur at Basantpur locality on the outskirts of the city. He was supposed to visit the IIM in December 2023.

Worth mentioning, the PM previously laid the foundation stone of the campus on January 2, 2021. The permanent campus has been built over an area of around 200 acres at a cost of over Rs 400 crore.

The PM will likely hold a public meeting in Sambalpur in view of the upcoming General Elections 2024. Proposed visit of the PM to Sambalpur district assumes significance as western Odisha is considered as the bastion of the BJP. Five of the eight Lok Sabha members of the party are from western Odisha.

Speculations are rife that Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan will be fielded by BJP from the Sambalpur Lok Sabha seat presently represented by Nitesh Gang Deb, a political analyst said.
