Bhubaneswar: On the occasion of the 104th Birth anniversary of former Chief Minister of Odisha Biju Patnaik, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has remembered the ‘Tall man’. Modi took to Twitter to praise the legendary man as he uploaded a classified document dated 1945 which conveys Patnaik’s excellent ability as a pilot.

The letter also describes the episode about how Biju Patnaik surreptitiously flew Ram Manohar Lohia (who was then underground) from Delhi to Calcutta.

The said Twitter post reads: Remembering Biju Babu on his Jayanti. This document from the pages of history (dated 1945) gives a glimpse of his courage (flying Dr. Lohia, who was then underground) and excellence.
