Bhubaneswar: Ahead of its Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi`s visit to Odisha on February 11, the BJP on Saturday said it was expecting about three lakh people at his public meeting.
"We have made arrangements for party workers who will come from across the state to take part in the meeting. Though we have planned for two lakh people, the number could well be three lakh," BJP state president KV Singhdeo told reporters here.

Modi would be accompanied by BJP president Rajnath Singh and senior leader and former chief minister of Jharkhand Arjun Munda.

Singhdeo said Modi would arrive at 12.45 pm by air to address the rally at 1:00 pm before flying back.

Convener of the rally, Bhrugu Baxipatra, said about 15,000 youths were registered as volunters, while members of Mahila Morcha, the women`s wing of the party, would reach out to every household through a `mehendi programme` to encourage participation by women.
