The Chief Minister had been so far confined to Naveen Niwas, except for visiting the shrines of Lord Jagannath in Puri and Lord Lingaraj in Bhubaneswar and the Baramunda bus stand for a review.
During the visit, the CM will launch various developmental projects worth approximately 2085 Crores for the development of the district. Naveen himself posted information about his proposed visit to Kalahandi on social media.
The security arrangements have been beefed up ahead of the Chief Minister’s visit where around 28 platoons of police force have been deployed.
Sources said the chief minister will practically launch the party’s campaign for the upcoming municipal elections from Kalahandi.
According to the schedule, nearly 2,000 people will congregate at the meeting venue and the programme will be telecast live.
The MLAs and ministers, who have been asked to camp in the panchayats, will ensure that people can watch the programme live on LED screens. Party MLAs and leaders have been asked to adhere strictly to Covid-19 guidelines.
