Odisha in focus as BJP kicks off major party meet

Uttar Pradesh BJP secretary Chaudhary Devendra Singh told this newspaper that on the direction of the party, about 150 workers from the western part of the state are in the city to help the local unit in managing booth for the April 23 civic polls. "Obviously, we have to keep organising public-contact programmes throughout the year", Pathak said.

Mr. Shah did not spare any words when it came to the opposition and the apprehensions expressed over the use of Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs).

What boosted the party's prospects is the recently concluded panchayat polls, where the BJP emerged second, relegating the Congress party to third position.

"Amit Shahji has asked the party workers to work harder and we will continue our work in the coming days as well", said Prasad. Over 300 top BJP delegates, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, veteran leader LK Advani, Amit Shah and 13 other council members will attend the meet. The Uttar Pradesh win broke that myth, Shah said, adding that the victory clearly proved that people are firmly with the BJP. Dalits constitute over 17 per cent of the state's electorate and have never been traditional voters of the saffron party, which is now wooing them aggressively. "BJP's golden period should be associated with country's golden period", Shah said. "Let us work to ensure that the BJP is in power-right from the panchayat to Parliament". "The win in UP was, unsurprisingly, a prominent theme of the presidential address with Shah terming the outcome in the largest state as a firm rejection of caste politics, dominance of one single family and also the politics of appeasement", said Prasad quoting Shah. The golden age is not just for the BJP, but for India.
