Bhubaneswar: This election season, hologram of BJD supremo-cum-Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik and a special bus is going to be the prime attraction of poll campaign in Odisha.

A state-of-the art technology-driven campaign, which will cover all the districts of Odisha, was launched by the BJD today from Bhubaneswar.

While Patnaik will be using the bus, procured from New Delhi, to reach out to voters, his life-sized hologram will also be projected simultaneously at 20 locations across Odisha, with daily 60 such holographic shows being undertaken across 30 districts of Odisha.

Reportedly, the bus has features such as bed, dining table, ultra modern bathroom and a conference room along with television and VSAT facilities. There is a cabin behind the driver, with a dais, from where the Chief Minister can address the voters.

Time, space and distance will no longer be factors as the Chief Minister through holographic shows would be able to speak in a real-life situation with the people. During these shows people's opinion would also be undertaken in terms of feedback for more focused development in the coming days for the state by the BJD.
