BJP eyes eastern push as executive meet begins in Bhubaneswar

BJP eyes eastern push as executive meet begins in Bhubaneswar”

Top party leaders, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, were in attendance as he asked the organisation to resolve for victory in the next round of assembly elections due in Himachal Pradesh, Gujarat and Karnataka, noting that a similar resolve was made previous year during the national executive meeting in Allahabad for five state elections, including in UP.

BJP top brass in the state have left for Odisha to participate in the two-day BJP national executive meeting being held in Bhubaneswar.

As several events took place for many years of the freedom struggle, it is important to remember all such events, he said. The prime minister is reported to have said that the Congress-led Opposition is hiding its failures behind the veil of EVM tampering.

Party sources said 2019 Odisha assembly elections are likely to take the centre stage at the meeting, where political and economic resolutions would also be adopted.

Though Governor SC Jamir had not gone to the airport to receive the Prime Minister, he was present there to give a warm send-off to Modi. "Now it's time for BJP to create that connection with the people of the nation", Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu told the media here.

Prime Minister Modi landed at Biju Patnaik International Airport around 3:30 PM and was given a grand welcome by ministers. "We have to speed up and what we have done so far is not enough", the Prime Minister said. He reportedly spoke about "justice for Muslim women" in the context of triple talaq during the meeting.

Mr. Gadkari said, during the meeting, Muslim women who are facing difficulties on the issue of triple talaq, was also discussed. It is crucial for the party to make way in states such as West Bengal, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Kerala, where regional parties dominate the political landscape. "If that happens, Panda, who enjoys a considerable following, will emerge as one of the readily acceptable faces of the BJP, upstaging Pradhan", a senior Bhubaneswar-based journalist said.

The BJP national president said he would spend three days in Kerala as part of the organisational expansion drive.

Modi focused on developing "Jan Dhan" (bank accounts, wealth for the poor), "Van Dhan" (tribals, forests, environment, etc), "Jal Dhan" (irrigation, drinking water, water recharge, use of sea water) for all encompassing development of the country.

"Now show your strength to serve the people and the down trodden", Shah said.

"In the last three years Modi ji attended programmes in atleast 300 district headquarters across the country", the BJP president pointed out.

"We were weak in Odisha. We know how to fight back", he said.
