BJD position in Odisha now akin to JD in mid-90s: Jual Oram

Bhubaneswar: Senior BJP leader and Union Tribal Affairs Minister Jual Oram on Tuesday said the position of the ruling BJD in Odisha has become just like that of the Janata Dal during 1995-97.

Speaking to mediapersons here, the Union Minister said resentment is brewing among the BJD cadres and it is clearly visible from outside.

Jual further said leaders of different political parties are in touch with the BJP. While some have joined the party, many more will follow suit.

“Many people are in touch with us. They personally want to join our party. Since we have a friendly relation with some leaders of other parties, they share their internal matters with us which I cannot disclose before the media,” he added.
