According to reports from FirstPost, he reached Odhisa on Wednesday for a three-day visit to devise plans for accomplishing "Mission 120"- win 120 out of the 147 seats in the state assembly.
BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra said the people of the state are "fed up with backwardness, misrule and corruption" during the BJD-rule and are eagerly waiting to have a taste of good governance of the BJP "whose popularity is growing under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi".
Assam finance minister Himanta Biswa Sarma who is the convener of the forum all the regional political parties except Congress which are part of the NEDA believe in all-round development. "The leaders are chosen on the basis of merit and not their family", Shah said, adding the BJP was the only party which had its ideologies and policies rooted in the cultural heritage of India.
"Works of around Rs 4 lakh crore have been declared by the Centre for Odisha".
Replying to a question at a press conference in Bhubaneshwar Shah said, "We can debate democratic values for those who respect democracy". But we are not getting required support from the State to take up the developmental projects.
The dip in GDP growth to 5.7 per cent in the first quarter of this financial year is "temporary" and not linked to demonetisation, BJP President Amit Shah said here on Thursday.
The BJP said it had to cancel the event - where a huge number of people were expected to come - due to lack of venue.
"The Modi government has made several provisions for the uplift of poor Dalits and backward classes". The meeting is assumed to be significant, as BJP got a boost after merger of all front liners of Trinamool Congress last months. The BJP is planning to contest on all the assembly seats.
