Bubaneswar: Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is on a two-day visit to Odisha, will inaugurate the National Institute of Science Education and Research and Indian Oil Refinery today.

"In Odisha, I will dedicate the National Institute of Science Education and Research and Indian Oil Refinery, Paradip to the nation," PM Modi had tweeted.

PM Modi stayed at the Raj Bhavan overnight and will inaugurate the National Institute of Science Education and Research (NISER) at Jatni on the outskirts of the state capital at 9 am today.

The Prime Minister is scheduled to interact with students and faculty members of the NISER and will leave for Puri to pay his obeisance to Lord Jagannath at around 11am.

"Will offer prayers at the Jagannath Temple in Puri during my Odisha visit on the 7th," PM Modi had tweeted.

Later, the Prime Minister will leave for Paradip to inaugurate IOCL's refinery project at around 1 pm and will address a public meeting there.

Director General of Police KB Singh reviewed security arrangements at Paradip, while other senior officers are camping at Puri and NISER to ensure full security for the Prime Minister.

"All arrangements are made as per the rule book," Singh said, adding about one lakh people are expected at Paradip.

For the PM's visit, the Sri Jagannath Temple Administration has decided to keep the temple doors closed for an hour.

The Archaeological Survey of India, which is repairing the temple complex, will suspend the work to facilitate entry of PM Modi into the sanctum sanctorum.

The Special Protection Group (SPG) also reviewed the security arrangements at Paradip, Puri and NISER ahead of PM Modi's visit.
