Bhubaneswar: The newly launched Information Technology (IT) Cell of the Biju Janata Dal organised a one-day conclave in Bhubaneswar on Wednesday, where a unique programme ‘Selfie With CM’ was launched.
Gracing the occasion, Chief Minister and BJD Supremo Naveen Patnaik said, “I am delighted to see youths congregate for the IT conclave today. IT is very much required in today’s world. Biju Babu also believed in science & technology. I am also delighted for the establishment of an IT cell of the BJD at all districts of Odisha,” Patnaik added.
On the occasion, the Chief Minister launched the official logo and badge of the party’s IT Wing.
