Eyeing 2019, BJP to hold national executive meet in Odisha on Saturday

"After the formation of the BJP government and Prime Minister Narendra Modi assuming the charge, India's goodwill has increased at global level".

Amit Shah said he would like his party to win in leftist states like West Bengal, Kerala, and Tripura, too, besides stand-alone states like Odisha. Shah said the state lagged far behind BJP-ruled states in every index of development.

Terming the action of the Chief Minister as politically motivated, Mohanty said this has hurt the sentiment of people of the State.In a federal system, there may be separate ruling political distensions at the Centre and States.

"The Union minister added that prime minsiter's speech revolved around "jan dhan", "jal dhan" and van dhan". "However, the Congress did not do it because of votebank politics", said Human Resource and Development Minister Prakash Javadekar.

"This time also the Prime Minister had disappointed the people of the State by not uttering a word about Constitution of a Inter-state river tribunal to resolve the Mahanadi water dispute issue between Odisha and Chhattisgarh".

Erstwhile Janata Dal leader Biju Patnaik once called the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) a "sign board party".

Speaking on phone while he was finding it tough to keep pace with PM's vehicle route, he said: 'I have not seen such a response in Bhubaneswar for any BJP leader.I have been in politics for over 35 years now.


"We should work for a solution at the district level", new agency ANI quotes Modi as saying.

Similarly, at present one has to imbibe the thought that the country has to be rid of poverty and India should be at the bottom of the table when it comes to the number of poor in the world.

Mr. Gadkari said, during the meeting, Muslim women who are facing difficulties on the issue of triple talaq, was also discussed.

He also called on the BJP leaders to maintain caution while making statements and to not get carried away by emotions and make untoward remarks. But, BJP formed governments in these two states. The BJP organised a motorcycle rally to welcome him.

"Now show your strength to serve the people and the down trodden", Shah said.

The resolution also said that the BJP's performance in the recent assembly elections in Manipur indicates that the policies of the Union government have been well accepted by the people. That is why the BJP is gaining ground in States like Manipur where we used get 2 per cent vote and now get 33 per cent, in Odisha where we were hovering around 10-12 per cent and now stand at 36 per cent. "We know how to fight back", he said.
