President Draupadi Murmu, walked about 2 km on Puri Grand Road while visiting the Jagannath temple. This is her first visit to Odisha after assuming charge of the top constitutional post of the country in July. She started her tour by paying obeisance at the Jagannath temple.
While moving towards the temple, the President stopped her convoy near Balagandi Chhak on the Grand Road and walked about 2 km to reach the temple. After reaching the Badadanda, Murmu offered her prayers to Lord Jagannath. Her daughter, Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan, BJP leader Sambit Patra and senior officers also joined the President.
She entered the shrine after touching the Aruna Stambha. Through the Baisipahacha, she entered the sanctum sanctorum of the temple and prayed before Lord Jagannath, Lord Balabhadra and Devi Subhadra.
After spending about 30 minutes inside the temple, she came out and signed the visitor’s book with a message. Later, she went to Puri Raj Bhawan where Mahaprasad was served to her.
On November 11, Murmu will visit Tapoban High School, Unit-II Government Girls High School and Kuntala Kumari Sabat Adivasi Girls Hostel Unit-II in Bhubaneswar and interact with students and teachers.
Later in the day, she will launch various projects of the Union Ministry of Education from Jayadev Bhawan here before leaving for New Delhi in the afternoon.
