Bhubaneswar, 14 July: Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi will be on a ‘personal and religious’ visit to Puri to seek the blessings of Lord Jagannath on 16 July. But the state unit of the BJP is buzzing with activity to ensure that the visit attracts public and media attention.
State BJP president Mr K V Singh Deo said Mr Modi will also meet Puri Sankaracharya Swami Nischilananda Saraswati and Gajapati Maharaja Dibya Singh Deb during his six hour visit to Puri. He will meet party leaders for a brief while, but there is no political programme as such, Mr Singh Deo said. sns
