Bhubaneswar: Indian Air Force officials on Sunday took stock of security arrangements in Mayurbhanj ahead of President Droupadi Murmu’s four-day visit to Odisha.

She will be in Mayurbhanj district for two days. This will be her third visit to her home district since assuming charge as the President in July 2022.

According to sources, the Air Force officials landed at the helipad at Pandurshil village in a special aircraft and held discussions with police officials on security arrangements at Khiching and Sukruli before flying back to Delhi. “The President will be in Mayurbhanj on February 28 and 29. Arrangements are being made in accordance with the protocol. We are hopeful of readying everything in time,” said Rairangpur ADM Doulat Chandra Kar.

Murmu will arrive in Mayurbhanj district on February 28 and inaugurate and lay foundation stones of several projects at her native place, Rairangpur. She is scheduled to lay the foundation stone of a holiday home of the CPWD and some highway projects, among others.

On February 29, she will spend around 30 minutes and offer prayers at Maa Kichakeswari temple between 10.10 am and 10.40 am before proceeding to Keonjhar to inaugurate a national-level seminar on tribals at Dharanidhar University.

In the evening, she will attend the 53rd Convocation of Utkal University in Bhubaneswar and stay overnight at Raj Bhavan.

On March 1, President Murmu will attend the 25th Convocation of Berhampur University in Ganjam district. The following day, she will participate in various programmes in Sambalpur before departing for Delhi, according to official sources.

In November 2023, the President had inaugurated an Eklavya Model Residential School at Kuliana and also attended the inaugural session of the 36th Annual Conference and Literary Festival of All India Santali Writers’ Association at Baripada, in the tribal-dominated Mayurbhanj district. Earlier in May that year, she attended the convocation of Maharaja Sriram Chandra Bhanja Deo University in Baripada and also visited the Similipal Tiger Reserve.
