On the other hand, the crucial meeting of the BJP legislative party which was also scheduled to be held on June 10, is likely to be held on June 11.

It is being said that PM Narendra Modi is scheduled to attend several crucial meetings tomorrow. Hence, the oath-taking ceremony of the new Odisha Chief Minister will be held after two days, informed BJP spokesperson Jatin Mohanty.
