Naveen expresses 'doubts' over BJP's mission 120 in Odisha

BJP chief Amit Shah turns focus to poll-bound states of Meghalaya Mizoram & Tripura

Accompanied by Union Petroleum and Natural Gas (PNG) Minister Dharmendra Pradhan and state BJP president Basant Panda, Shah visited the 11th century Lord Lingaraj Temple.

"The demonetisation has not had any negative impact (on economic growth)".

President Amit Shah on Thursday said his party would fight the 2019 assembly polls in Odisha alone and get over 120 of the 147 seats.

"The BJP has set a target to win at least 120 seats in 2019 Assembly elections and we will surely achieve it".




The question regarding beef ban came up during a presentation by the Sikkim government as the state is the first in the north east to ban all kinds of cow slaughter with a punishment of minimum two years imprisonment, NDTV reported.

The Indigenous Nationalist Party of Twipra (INPT) has chose to form electoral alliance with BJP to fight against the the CPM in 2018 Assembly polls. He also holds meetings with BJP members, office bearers, leaders and intellectuals to hear their problems and discuss the roadmap for the upcoming elections.

Mr Shah on Wednesday evening said the voices of dissent were never tolerated in the Congress and BJD, and people with enormous potential were always sidelined and suppressed.

Criticising Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik for celebrating an award given by a news magazine to him, Shah said an award can not take the state forward when the government was involved in corruption. Of the several pro-poor initiatives of Modi Government like the Jan Dhan Yojana, Deen Dayal Gram Jyoti Yojana, Ujjwala Yojan, Crop Insurance Scheme, Digital India, Swachh Bharat Mission, Mudra Yojana, Start up India and Stand up India, the free LPG distribution to BPL families has been a game changer for the party. "Development was halted during the Congress rule", the BJP President added.
