Bhubanswar: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik would visit Sundargarh headquarters town on March 3. Besides addressing a huge gathering at Bhabani ground, Patnaik would launch a slew of projects worth Rs 1,000 crores.
According to party sources, the leaders and workers are overjoyed with Patnaik as four leaders of the district were inducted in party’s 80- member executive committee. While total 30 districts have 80 representations, only Sundargarh has four, indicating the priority given by the State leadership to the district.
Now the total party membership in the district has touched 3,96,429. So, the CM programme will be a mega event with big gathering.
Provision was made for supply of safe drinking water to the 63 GPs of Kuarmunda, Nuagaon, Gurundia, Koira and Lahunipara blocks worth Rs 660,50,20,000. 3.3 lakh people will be benefitted from the project.
Besides sanctioning Rs 1 crore each to a Rajgangpur mosque and a Rourkela church for renovation also signifies the concern of the CM for the district, said a party leader.
Apart from this, the CM may declare for a sports club worth Rs 245 crore.
So, to make the programme a grand success, preparation at a public meeting place has been geared up after due puja (worship of ground). Almost all the front-line leaders of the district are camping at Sundargarh to supervise the preparation work.
