Naveen leaves for 4-day Delhi visit, to attend plan panel meet on Sunday

Bhubaneswar, December 6:  Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Saturday left for New Delhi on a four day visit. He is scheduled to return the State on December 9.

The Chief Minister will attend the Chief Ministers’ meeting on Sunday convened by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to discuss the structure, scope and role of the new body that will replace Planning Commission in the changed economic scenario under the new Government.

Sources said the Prime Minister will seek the views of Chief Ministers on the shape and functions of the body which would replace the Planning Commission.

Sources added that Modi has convened the meeting of all Chief Ministers on Sunday to elicit their views on the restructuring of Planning Commission.

Meanwhile, while responding to a question about his party’s stand on new Janata Parivar, Patnaik said it is too early to comment on it and we have no thought about it.


There have been a lot of deliberations within the Commission itself on making the institution more in tune with the changing requirements of the nation.
