Union Home Minister Amit Shah's scheduled visit to Odisha has been put on hold in view of cyclone Biparjoy which is expected to make a landfall in Gujarat on June 15, informed Odisha BJP General Secretary, Prithviraj Harichandan on Wednesday.

Shah was scheduled to visit Dhenkanal on June 17 and address a gathering as part of the party's ‘Jan Sampark Abhiyan’.

Addressing the media, Harichandan said, “As Gujarat is bracing up for cyclone Biparjoy, Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s visit to Odisha has been put on hold. He will visit the State soon.”

“BJP National President JP Nadda will also visit the state on June 22 to take part in the mass outreach campaign,” Harichandan informed.

As per reports, ahead of the crucial 2024 elections, several key leaders of the BJP are set to hold massive programmes in Odisha as part of their month-long ‘Jan Sampark Abhiyan’.

The mass outreach campaign is being held across the country to mark the completion of nine years of the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre.
