Bhubaneshwar, Mar 9 : Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi will visit the National Aluminium Company (NALCO) in Orissa's Angul District today.

During his visit, Rahul will unveil his father's statue at Banarpal.

Before leaving for Mayurbhanj, he will also hold talks with members of state Indian Trade Union Congress.

In Mayurbhanj, Nehru-Gandhi scion Rahul is scheduled to interact with tribal youths this afternoon.

Rahul, who is on a four-day visit of the state from Friday, will also address a public rally at Berhampur in Ganjam District.

Rahul, who aims to visit interior areas of the State to understand and feel the problems being faced by the farmers, tribal people and the youth, spent his night in a tribal village of Koraput district on Saturday.

The residents complained to him about the indifferent attitude and lack of cooperation from the authorities.

Rahul expressed that although development was important, but it cannot be at the cost of nature and the tribal identity.

Hailing the tribal's as preservers of natural wealth and knowledge, the Congress leader urged them to take up the role of leadership in the society.

Rahul on Saturday visited a remote village called Ejurpa in the Niyamgiri forest area and promised support to the tribals for their agitation against the proposed bauxite mining from the hills.
