With a mission to grab power for the first time in Odisha, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is working round-the-clock to reach out to the people by highlighting Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision for development and 25 years of alleged misgovernance of the ruling Biju Janata Dal (BJD) in the state.

As part of its strategy, the Odisha unit of the BJP on Saturday held a mega roadshow and the party's top leaders took charge of the campaign in Balasore.

State BJP president Manmohan Samal, BJP National Vice-President and party’s Kendrapara Lok Sabha candidate Baijayant Panda, Bhubaneswar Lok Sabha candidate Aparajita Sarangi, Sambalpur LS candidate Dharmendra Pradhan and senior leader and Balasore MP candidate Pratap Sarangi were part of the roadshow in Balasore.

Apart from the roadshow, the senior BJP leaders will hold discussion and chalk out strategies with party leaders, candidates and workers today.

The meeting assumes significance as the fourth phase election will be held in six places of Odisha including Balasore. It will be an attempt to give the final touches to the preparedness of the party ahead of the crucial polls. It is being said that a new strategy is being prepared by the BJP with an intention to give a push to its mission to form government in Odisha.

During the roadshow, State BJP president Manmohan Samal said, “It is part of the party’s strategy to reach out to people with our manifesto with our pledge and vision. We are fighting the polls with all leaders of the party. The people of Odisha want change and they are supporting us. They want an end to the corrupt government in Odisha.”

According to Samal, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had earlier raised several issues including Odisha Asmita, employment and other issues which are connected with the daily lives of the people.
