Prime Minister Narendra Modi would visit Balangir to attend a mega public rally, Swabhiman Samabesh, on January 16, informed BJP State general secretary Prithviraj Harichandan here on Friday.
This would be his second visit to Odisha in the month of January. Prior to his Balangir programme, Modi is scheduled to visit Baripada on January 5 to attend a rally there.
Notably, Modi came to Odisha on December 24 to launch a basket of projects including a new campus of the IIT Bhubaneswar and foundation-stone laying of the IISER Brahmapur besides addressing a Swabhiman Samabesh at Khordha.
Youth dies in B’ngir road mishap

A youth, Gopal Mishra, of Gandhinagar Pada was killedc after being hit by a speeding truck near Mahadev Mandir Square here on Friday night while he was returning home.
After the incident, irate locals held road blockades at several places and set ablaze two trucks and damaged some other others trucks.
Police and Fire Services officials along with the Balangir Sub-Collector reached the spots and held discussions with the agitating people, following which the blockades were called off.
Notably, before 10 pm, many trucks wait outside the town because of a no-entry rule and once they start plying, they move with great speed.
The present incident clearly shows the traffic congestion is increasing in the town and construction of a Balangir bypass is very much necessary to minimise the traffic rush and reduce accidents, said Balangir Action Committee member Gopalji Panigrahi.
The committee has been demanding construction of a bypass since 2013 but to no avail, he added.
Notably, the Balangir bypass project has been held up as the Central Government has asked for clarification from the State Government on the inflated rates quoted for compensation for acquisition of land.

Governor Prof Ganesh Lal on Saturday inaugurated the centenary celebrations of the Prithiraj Goshala in Balangir.
The Prithiraj Goshala was set up by former Maharaja of the Patna State Prithiraj Singh Deo in 1919 and the land was given in 1918, informed an organiser.
Appreciating the steps taken by people at the Gosala, the Governor informed that in Haryana there are 416 Goshalas. He said cow is the backbone of Indian economy, narrating the role cow played in earlier times. Even if a cow doesn't give milk yet it can provide economic benefits of Rs 40,000 through its urine and cow dung, Lal told.
Lal donated Rs 1 lakh to the Goshala. He also visited the Budhabahal village and interacted with SHG members. Earlier, the Governor worshipped in the temple inside the Goshala and fed a cow.
