The leaders and hundreds of party workers participated in the Padayatra, which is aimed at lessening gap between the BJD Government and the people.
The Yatra started almost one hour late.
In another development, BJP workers led by Basudev Pati staged Satyagrah before the Collectorate here protesting alleged failures of the Naveen Pattnaik Government.
In the morning, the district administration had organised an all religion prayer meeting at the Gandhi statue to mark the Gandhi Jayanti.
