  • BJP readies for 2019 elections with 2-day meeting in Odisha

Many developmental activities can be undertaken in this minerals-rich state.

Shah asked the party workers to react peacefully against the violence perpetrated against them in states like Kerala, Bengal and Tripura. The BJP working committee members will devote 15 days for this objective. "But the assembly election results have changed that perception", Prasad said.

On his way to the BJP meeting venue - the Janata Maidan - Modi met some tribal leaders and students at Jayadev Vihar here.

"We will also win Odisha", Shah said at the meeting. "We discussed the various issues plaguing Odisha".

Additionally, the BJP has identified 120 Lok Sabha seats it lost in 2014 but hopes to win in 2019. After the recent UP victory also, they are saying that the BJP has reached its peak. "But Amit Shah said that the party is yet to hit its peak".

The central government has also given Padma awards for the first time to many little-known people doing good work in different field and made selection process transparent, he said, while also lauding it for the passage of the GST bills. But our aim is to have a chief minister in every state.... That goal is still far away given the party's strength of just 10 MLAs in the 147-member Assembly.

"Let's resolve to make BJP a pan-India party from panchayats to Parliament". "Winning 325 of the 403 seats proves that the people of UP are with the BJP".

Shah, in his speech, said that 14 per cent people in Odisha were denied safe drinking water, 22 per cent did not have toilet and 41 per cent lacked quality electricity.

Targeting the opposition for questioning electronic voting machines (EVMs), BJP President Amit Shah said on Saturday that instead of making excuses, these parties should have honestly introspected the reasons.

The party's stunning victory in the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections has boosted the morale of the party - that it can defeat regional parties as well.

Minister Prasad said BJP chief Amit Shah said this at BJP National Executive Meet.

A huge crowd gathered on both sides of the road to catch a glimpse of Modi.

The state BJP has mobilized around one lakh people, at least 50 each from all the organizational units across the state, to greet Prime Minister Narendra Modi when he arrives at Bhubaneswar this afternoon. "Modi, ' "Bharat Mata ki Jai" and 'Bande Mataram" rent the air.

The Prime Minister will also visit the Sri Lingaraj temple to offer prayers, according to state BJP spokesperson Sajjan Sharma.
