A high-level meeting to this effect was held under the chairmanship of Chief Secretary Suresh Chandra Mahapatra today.
Mahapatra reportedly directed concerned officials to stay alert and keep strict vigil over the entire process meticulously so as to make the visit of President Murmu free of any hitches and omissions.
President Droupadi Murmu is scheduled to arrive here on Friday for a two-day trip to the State during which she will attend the convocation ceremony of Rama Devi Women's University in Bhubaneswar, besides attending other programmes.
As per schedule, President Murmu would arrive at Biju Patnaik International Airport here on February 10 around noon and would proceed to Utkal Mandap, Bhubaneswar to attend the foundation day of Jnanaprabha Mission as chief guest.
After lunch, the President will attend the second convocation ceremony of Rama Devi Women's University, her alma mater, in the city. She will spend the night at Raj Bhawan here.
Next morning, President Murmu is scheduled to visit Lingaraj Temple in the city to pay obeisance to the Lord Lingaraj and then proceed towards Cuttack to inaugurate the second Indian Rice Congress at ICAR.
Then she will leave for Delhi from Bhubaneswar Airport on the same day.
