Hundreds of Congress and BJD workers, apart from leaders and members of other parties, joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) during a special function organised by the party in Ganjam district on Wednesday.

With barely two months left for the Panchayat elections in Odisha, BJP's 'Mishran Parva' in the home district of the BJD supremo and Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik is seen as a massive show of strength by the saffron party.

Speaking on the sidelines of the function, State BJP president Samir Mohanty said that several Congress workers left the grand old party and joined the BJP on Wednesday. Besides, hundreds of youths also joined the party today, he said.

Mohanty further said that people are fed up with the ongoing corruption and anarchy prevailing in the State and joining the BJP in large numbers. And, the success of the 'Mishran Parva' is a testimony to the mass reaction, he added.

Many heavyweight leaders of the region joined the BJP today. It proves that people now want to be a part of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's development agenda, said State BJP general secretary, Lekhashree Samantsinghar.

She further alleged that the ruling BJD government in Odisha is mired in corruption and now people want to get rid of the ill-governance and deteriorating law and order situation in the State.

During the upcoming Panchayat polls, the BJP will highlight the achievements of the Modi government and expose how the Naveen government has been misutilising Central funds in the State, the party leaders said.
