| | BHUBANESWAR | in Bhubaneswar

Former President Pranab Mukherjee would release a pictorial biography of the late legendary political leader and former Odisha Chief Minister Biju Patnaik on his birth centenary celebration here on January 27.

Clarifying that the centenary celebration of Biju Patnaik is not a party affair of the BJD, party spokesperson Pratap Kesari Deb said the Biju Patnaik Centenary Committee would organise the event, to which several senior leaders from different political parties across the country have been invited to attend. Deb said BJP veteran Lal Krishna Advani, Communist Party of India (Marxist) general secretary Sitaram Yechury, former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda and a number of Union Ministers are slated to take part in the Biju Patnaik birth centenary celebration.

Sources said that Biju Patnaik’s pictorial biography is an authentic description on him as the factual matters have been collected from his family members.
