Ahead of 2024 general elections, central leaders of the Bharatiya Janata Party have camped in Odisha to implement the strategy prepared in Delhi for the state.
While the party’s national general secretary (organisation) BL Santosh, regional prabhari Sunil Bansal and state co-in charge Vijay Pal Singh Tomar are in the state, the state unit of the saffron party is all set to have its coordination meeting in Bhubaneswar on Friday.
While talking to journalists, party’s state co-in charge Vijay Pal Singh Tomar said, “The BJP is always ready for the election. The decisions taken at the meeting of national functionaries need to reach to the state-level and district-level meetings and then they should be implemented.”
“A blue-print for over 50 percent votes from each booth in the state will be prepared,” he added.
When asked how to pull down the bastion of the Biju Janata Dal (BJD), he said, “There is nothing impossible in it. Uttar Pradesh can be taken as an example. The Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party ruled the state for 15 years. Once it used to be seemed that they were impregnable. But, the BJP won in more than 50 seats. So, once the party and its leaders have decided to form government here in Odisha, the BJP will definitely come up victorious here.”
When asked about the Congress’ allegation that the BJD and the BJP are united, he said, “The BJD has stood with us at times of different issues. But, when it comes to issues with farmers and common people in the state and corruption in the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana, the BJP is always against the BJD.”
While informing about the party’s programmes, he said the meeting of the party’s functionaries, district presidents and district prabharis will be held on Saturday and on Monday, a meeting of the party’s Sanyukt Morcha will be held.
