BJP National President JP Nadda is set to visit Odisha on a two-day visit to the state from September 29. Odisha BJP General Secretary Golak Mohapatra informed about the development on Monday.
As per the arrangement, Nadda will stay in Odisha for two days on September 29 and 30.
While the Saffron party’s new Odisha Prabhari (in-charge) Sunil Bansal is already in Odisha, the party’s general secretary (organisation) B L Santosh and National President JP Nadda are also scheduled to pay visits to the State this month.
Ahead of 2024 general elections, the visits of the party stalwarts have assumed immense importance in the political circuit.
Meanwhile, after the meeting Bansal had with party leaders, a three-month strategy has been prepared, keeping the 2024 general elections in mind.
Today, Bansal first held a core committee meeting, then with State functionaries. The party, in these two meetings, has chalked out strategies on how the State government’s failures can be taken to each and every people of the State.
The party will also have a three-day-long training camp in Puri starting September 13. Besides this, the party will also stage demonstrations at 37,000 booths across the State.
Informing about the outcome of the meeting, party’s State general secretary Golak Mohapatra said, “It has been decided that we will take the successes of our party and failures of the BJD government to the people in all the 37,000 booths across the State. In coming days, it will take shape of mass public agitation.”
It is worth mentioning that Union Home Minister Amit Shah had also paid a two-day visit to Odisha in August.
During his stay, Shah visited Lingaraj Temple, Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose’s birthplace and attended the ‘Amruta Utsav’ of the Prajatantra.
He also launched the Odisha chapter of 'Modi@20: Dreams Meet Delivery', a book on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s completion of 20 years as the head of a government- from becoming the Chief Minister of Gujarat in 2001 to being elected the Prime Minister of India in 2014 and again in 2019.
In political circles, it has been discussed that the visits of national BJP leaders to Odisha will go a long way in helping infuse life into the party which suffered jolts in the Panchayat and Urban Polls.
