Amit Shah to hold series of events in Odisha

Amit Shah BJP president

Accompanied by Union Petroleum and Natural Gas (PNG) Minister Dharmendra Pradhan and state BJP president Basant Panda, Shah visited the 11th century Lord Lingaraj Temple.

Claiming that the BJP always believed in internal democracy, Mr Shah said a common boy who used to paste party posters on walls in his home town in Gujarat could become president of the biggest political party in the world and a teaseller (Narendra Modi) could become Prime Minister of India.

"The GDP growth came down because a lot of traders cleared their stocks in advance in order to get input tax credit".

Amit Shah has begun his three-day visit to Odisha where he will be discussing strategies to accomplish "Mission 120"- win 120 out of the 147 seats in the State Assembly.

BJP has approached the major tribal-based parties of the state - Indigenous People's Front of Twipra (IPFT) and the Indigenous Nationalist Party of Twipra (INPT) - to join the North East Democratic Alliance (Neda) in a bid to unseat the Left Front government in the upcoming assembly election.

Instagram tests feature enabling users to share Stories directly to Facebook
We guess this shouldn't be surprising given that the different apps are used for different reasons. The Story feature might be popular on Instagram , but the same can't be said on Facebook .

BJP national spokesperson Sambit Patra said the people of Odisha had now "developed doubts" in the Chief Minister over his "non-performance". But we are not getting required support from the State to take up the developmental projects. "The mood of the people is changing".

Amit Shah on Wednesday evening said the voices of dissent were never tolerated in the Congress and BJD.

Maintaining that dynastic politics dominated most parties including the Congress, the BJP president asked the gathering as to who will be the president of the oldest party of India after Sonia Gandhi and said the answer was obvious.

Shah advised the party leaders to highlight the pro-poor programmes of the Centre and how the State has benefited during the last three years of its governance. The BJP has just 10 MLAs in the assembly.
