Bhubaneswar: Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has decided not to celebrate Holi tomorrow as tribute to the martyrs of Pulwama terror attack.

Patnaik has advised well wishers not to throng his residence Naveen Niwas on Friday for the celebrations.

The Chief Minister had not played Holi last year also due to a cold.

It is worthwhile to mention that 40 CRPF jawans had been killed on February 14 last month in a suicide attack hatched by Pakistan-based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM).
