More Visits Of Shah

BJP National President Amit Shah is not in a mood to allow other leaders to take care of Odisha.


With the Lok Sabha elections and Assembly polls drawing closer, Mr.Shah is scheduled to address a rally at Sambalpur on 15 February and more other rallies in the State.

Mr.Shah will have a meeting with the booth level organisers of four Lok Sabha constituencies of Dhenkanal, Sambalpur, Bargarh and Sundargarh.

About 60,000 booth level organizers will attend the meeting, according to state BJP President, Basanta Panda.

This will be Mr.Shah’s third visit to Odisha this year and the second in 12 days.

His last visit to Odisha was on February 3 when he addressed a meeting of BJP's ST Morcha at Puri. Earlier, he had visited Cuttack district and addressed a public meeting at Kulia in Salipur block on January 29.

On both the occasions, Shah had slammed the Naveen Patnaik-led BJD government in Odisha dubbing it as a "fused transformer" which needs to be replaced.

Mr. Shah’s back-to-back visits were followed by a tour of BJP stalwart and Union Minister Nitin Gadkari to Dhenkanal and Paradip on February 6 when he launched a slew of projects.

The BJP, which seems to be leaving no stone unturned to brighten its poll prospects, is also organising "Parivartan Samabesh" in all the 147 Assembly segments in the state. The saffron party has set a target of winning more than 120 of the 147 Assembly seats in the state.

As part of its strategy, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, Union ministers Giriraj Singh, Ram Kripal Yadav and Manoj Sinha are scheduled to lead the partys campaign in Odisha in days ahead.

Rajnath Singh is slated to visit Odisha on February 17, while Giriraj Singh and Ram Kripal Yadav are also scheduled to tour the state. Adityanath's programmes are being given final shape, a senior BJP leader said.

The visits are coming after three back-to-back visits of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the state on December 24, January 5 and January 15.

The saffron party is keen to corner a large number of the 21 Lok Sabha seats in Odisha and also overthrow the Naveen Patnaik Government.

The BJD is in power in Odisha since 2000 and BJP is trying hard to dislodge the Regional Outfit.
