Ascribing the country’s development to a stable government in the centre for ten years, Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan on Sunday said that for the good work to continue, PM Narendra Modi-led government should come to power once more. 

“The nation has achieved new heights in development, thanks to a stable government in the country for the last ten years. Unemployment has decreased, people’s income has increased, farmers’ earnings has increased, people have moved above the poverty line and respect for women has increased. To provide momentum to this development, the Modi government should come to power once more,” Pradhan said.

“For Modi 3.0 and an impressive victory, we all have to target over 50 percent votes in our respective booths. This is what the Prime Minister has appealed for. In Odisha, the PM’s approval rating is 80 percent. The effect of Modi's juggernaut, his working style, and the Modi factor are being felt even in Odisha. We all have to make sure that 50 percent of votes should be for Modi at the booth-level. This time, more than 50 percent vote share will go to Modi,” he added. 

Similarly, upon reaching Odisha from New Delhi after attending the BJP's office bearers meeting, leader of the opposition (LoP) Jayanarayan Mishra said they would reach out to all the four crore people in Odisha ahead of the elections. 

“We met Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah, and Party's National President JP Nadda. Our discussion with them was very encouraging. They asked us to work in such a way so as to ensure the party’s victory in the 2024 general elections. In the coming days, we will work hard to form government in Odisha,” said Mishra.
