Prime Minister Narendra Modi is visiting Odisha and Chhattisgarh where he will launch a series of projects on Saturday. In Odisha, PM Modi unveiled a plaque marking the revival of fertiliser plant at Talcher and inaugurated the Jharsuguda airport.

The fertiliser plant at Talcher is the first plant in India which will have a coal gasification-based fertiliser unit and will also produce natural gas. The plant, to be commissioned by 2022, will ensure easy availability of urea in Odisha as there is no urea plant in the state at present.
