BJP plans to focus, tells "failure" of BJD govt in Odisha
He said strategies for the Lok Sabha and state assembly elections due next year were discussed threadbare at a meeting of top leaders of the state today.
To gear up for the 2019 polls the BJP plans to focus the villages across Odisha to tell the people about alleged "failure" of the Biju Janata Dal government in the state, a senior party leader said today.
"It has been decided to move to the villages and sensitize people in rural areas about the failure of BJD regime on all fronts and achievements of the BJP-led NDA Government," said senior BJP leader Pratap Sarangi.
The progress of organizational works assigned by party president Amit Shah was reviewed. BJP workers will tell people about state governments "anti-poor" policy, Sarangi said accusing the BJD regime of the hijacking of central schemes by giving them different names. He cited the pucca housing scheme as an example.
The BJP leader also hit out at the Naveen Patnaik government for opposing the Ayushman Bharat National Health Protection Mission. During his visit to Odisha recently, Amit Shah had assigned different tasks to various party office bearers as part of the party's mission to win more than 120 seats in the 147-member state assembly in 2019 polls.
Panchayat heads and core committee members were asked to form 4,000 to 5,000 booth-level committees.
