Bhubaneswar: Social activist Anna Hazare will visit Odisha for three days, beginning Thursday, and attend several programmes in the state, an India Against Corruption (IAC) member said in Bhubaneswar on Wednesday.
"He (Anna Hazare) would be given a grand welcome here," IAC's national core committee member Akshay Kumar said. He said Hazare would be escorted from the airport to the Odisha capital Bhubaneswar by a motorcycle procession.
Hazare is scheduled to address farmers on Saturday in the coastal town of Jagatsinghpur, about 100 km from Bhubaneswar.
He is also scheduled to interact with students of a private engineering college in Bhubaneswar, Akshay Kumar said.
