Bhubaneswar: While there seem to be many leaders eyeing the top BJP post in Odisha, Union Minister Pratap Sarangi today clarified that the party is not facing any issues and the decision will be a unanimous one.

"There have been discussions among the party members. It's a regular process and the decision will be a unanimous one," said Sarangi.

On the other hand, BJP national vice-president Vinay Sahasrabuddhe and national secretary RP Singh today reportedly held discussions with some of the leaders of the State BJP unit and have prepared a report based on the feedback collected.

Moreover, BJP-appointed observers for the organisational polls in Odisha- Narendra Singh Tomar and Rajiv Pratap Rudy will also visit the State soon to review the situation. Later, the new chief of Odisha BJP will be elected in presence of the Central observers.

It is worth mentioning that the BJP's national leadership is reportedly looking for a candidate with organisational abilities and the one who can lead the party from the front during elections.

If reports are to be believed the current vice-president of State BJP, Samir Mohanty and general secretary Prithviraj Harichandan are seen as the top contenders for the post while all eyes will be on party's western Odisha leaders too as the top post has been going to them since 2004.
