OJM will form govt after 2014 polls: Pyari
“OJM will form government with the support of 80-85 MLAs,” Mohapatra told mediapersons after convening a meeting in Sambalpur.
When asked about the coalition parties of OJM, he said, “I don’t want to disclose names of the parties, but certainly not with Congress and the ruling Biju Janta Dal (BJD).”
Replying to a query whether OJM is open to Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) to forge alliance, Mohapatra said ‘they are free to join’.
BJD chief whip Pravat Tripathy however countered Mohapatra’s statement saying it as ‘day dream’.
“An outfit which has neither taken shape of a political party nor decided its political allies, how can it think of to form government?”
The OJM chief on Sunday had said over three lakh members have joined his organization and majority of whom are from the ruling BJD.
