    Vishakhapatnam: Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and Defence Minister Rajnath Singh is scheduled to embark on a series of visits to Odisha starting Thursday, where he will participate in a gathering with party members and address a public event in Mayurbhanj district.
    The visit is part of the Defence Minister's two-day visit to Andhra Pradesh and Odisha concluding on Thursday. On Wednesday, the Minister addressed a gathering at the inaugural event of MILAN 2024 International Seminar in Vishakhapatnam.

    The Minister would start the "cluster tour" by attending a meeting with party workers at Nabarangapur and Berhampur districts and a public meeting at Mayurbhan in Odisha.
    In a post on his 'X' handle, the Defence Minister had also mentioned: "Tomorrow, February 22, I shall be on a cluster tour in Odisha. Looking forward to addressing Karyakarta Sammelans at Nabarangapur & Berhampur and a public meeting at Mayurbhanj. @BJP4Odisha."
    The Minister is expected to arrive in Nabarangpur from neighbouring Chhattisgarh this morning for a meeting with ex-servicemen and party workers.
