The major political parties are not leaving any stone unturned to gain an upper hand by revising their strategies ahead of the high-stakes general elections in Odisha.
At a time when the BJP is all set to rope in heavyweights like party President JP Nadda, Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari and others, the Odisha unit of the Congress is also not far behind.
After Rahul Gandhi’s visit to Odisha during the ongoing Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra, the Congress camp is upbeat and is also set to lay out the red carpet for several key leaders of the party.
Odisha Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) president, Sarat Pattanayak today informed that Priyanka Gandhi and Rajasthan Congress’ poster boy Sachin Pilot will be visiting the state soon for campaigning.
“Rahul Gandhi visited Odisha and there is probability that he will also be visiting Odisha again. Apart from this, Priyanka Gandhi and Sachin Pilot are also scheduled to visit Odisha and attend various programmes and events,” said Pattanayak.
The PCC president further said that the Odisha Congress unit is ready to start campaigning ahead of the general elections.
“No matter who from BJP or BJD comes for campaigning in Odisha, it will have no impact as everybody knows that they are one,” alleged Pattanayak.
Meanwhile, the senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has written a letter to Union Minister of Youth Affairs and Sports, Anurag Thakur demanding immediate replacement and relaying of the AstroTurf at the SAI Special Area Games (SAG) Centre in Sundargarh.
