Bhubaneswar: October 28: In his ‘Mann Ki Baat’ Programme, Prime Minister Narendra Modi advised sport lovers to attend the Odisha Hockey Men’s World Cup-2018 scheduled to be held at the Kalinga Stadium here from November 28 to December 16.

Addressing the Countrymen he said, “It is a good chance for the sport lovers to witness closely contested matches. Go to Bhubaneshwar and cheer up the Indian team and also encourage each team there. Odisha has a dignified historical background and has a very rich cultural tradition. People of the state are full of warmth. This is a chance for the sports lovers to see Odisha. They can visit the world famous holy places like the Sun Temple of Konark, Lord Jagannath Temple in Puri and Chilka Lake along with enjoying the games there. I convey my best wishes to our Men’s Hockey Team for this tournament and assure them that 125 crore Indians are supporting them.
