Besides, a signature campaign will be conducted on 05 March 2016, on his 100th birthday, at the heart of city of Bhubaneswar to create awareness and connect the mass with the ‘mass-leader’ of the century!
There will be a conclave of luminaries from different walks of life to discuss and deliberate about Biju Patnaik; his vision in making and mapping out the future of modern Odisha. Reputed speakers will be invited from the fields of politics; bureaucracy; socio-economic and political scientists etc.
