Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday met the family members of the freedom fighters at Raj Bhawan, who undertook an armed rebellion against the British East India Company in 1817.

While addressing a gathering, Modi said, ''Unfortunately the massive struggle of Independence in our country was restricted to few families & incidents.''

After meeting freedom fighters, Modi visited the famous Lingaraj Temple.

Modi arrived in Odisha on Saturday amid massive fanfare for the Bharatiya Janata Party's two-day national executive meeting.

Senior party leader M.M. Joshi, Home Minister Rajnath Singh, Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu and other party leaders are also expected to be present at the meeting.
