Amit Shah To Reach Bhubaneswar Today

"Our agenda is to groom workers in all 32,000 booths in Odisha and party's performance in the state will lay the foundation for expansion", said petroleum minister Dharmendra Pradhan, a prominent face of the party in the coastal state.6.

The two-day BJP National Executive meeting began with the lighting of the ceremonial lamp by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and party President Amit Shah. During the brainstorming sessions at the meet, party leaders are expected to highlight the success stories from other states with a special mention of Uttar Pradesh where.

"When we won in 2014, they said BJP has reached its peak".

The BJP had planned the impressive road show to compensate for the absence of a public meeting which was ruled out given the scorching heat. Congress, the principal Opposition party in the state, was pushed to a distant third in the panchayat polls. Leading the discussions are BJP president Amit Shah and Prime Minister Narendra Modi who drove down from the airport in a Range Rover sports utility vehicle to a rousing welcome.

Prime Minister Modi is scheduled to arrive at the state capital by 3.30pm. Beyond the actual route of the convoy, nearly the entire city was a sea of saffron with party flags and cut-outs of the Prime Minister. All others, including veterans L.K. Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi, find place sparingly. He would spend the night at the Raj Bhavan.

Its win in the state polls was due to the Modi government's pro-poor and welfare policies, Shah said, reaffirming that the prime minister was the most popular leader since Independence.

Shah landed today to prepare the ground for Modi's reception. After that he will take part in the OdiaNew Year celebrations at party headquarters along with state leaders.

He exhorted party leaders to work to realise the Modi government's dream of a "New India".

These areas cover over 200 seats.

Enthused by its resounding victory in Uttar Pradesh, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is quite confident that it would come to power in Odisha, where it has never been in a commanding position despite being an ally of the ruling coalition for nine years.

Questioning the integrity of electronic voting machines (EVMs) amounted to openly disrespecting the Election Commission, he said in his inaugural address at the two-day national executive meet of the BJP here. After some time, differences appeared in the alliance and BJD parted ways with the NDA.
