CM Patnaik said Odisha, which was devastated by the 1999 super cyclone, has now emerged as a ‘Model State’ in various realms of progress and development. He said that Odisha was once importing rice for its people. But now, the state has become a surplus producer which is providing foodgrains to other states.
