BJP will form government in Odisha under PM Modi: Dharmendra Pradhan

Bhubaneswar: Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan today claimed that the Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) will come to power in Odisha in the upcoming elections.

Pradhan’s statements came in reponse of the recent India Today survey which claimed that Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik still enjoyed top position in terms of popularity in the state.

Patnaik left behind several other leaders including Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan who stood second with 22 percent votes. Odisha Congress president Niranjan Patnaik got a mere 5 percent votes in his favour in the survey.

“The survey claims that BJD will win more Assembly while BJP will get maximum votes for Lok Sabha. The same survey claims that people in Odisha have voted more for PM Narendra Modi’s governance,” said Pradhan.

Pradhan further stated that BJP under the leadership of PM Narendra Modi will come to power in Odisha in the upcoming elections.

“The writing is on the wall as the youth, women and others in Odisha will vote in favour of BJP,” Pradhan added.

Reponding to Pradhan’s statements, BJD MP Soumya Ranjan Patnaik on the other hand stated that before elections, several political parties and leaders claim to form government.

“I have nothing to say on Union Minister’s claim which is no less than day dreaming,” said Patnaik.

Patnaik further claimed that people of Odisha have voted for particular party in last 18 years.
