SOUTH ODISHA BJP CADRE GEAR UP FOR 2014 ELECTIONS
A meeting of MLAs, ex-MLAs, office-bearers and senior party workers of the BJP from 10 organisational districts of south Odisha such as Koraput, Rayagada, Malkanagiri, Nabarangpur, Gajapati, Kandhamal, Boudh, Chhatrapur, Bhanjanagar and Brahmapur was held in Berhampur city on Wednesday under the chairmanship of former MP Prasuram Majhi.
Speaking on the occasion, BJP national general secretary (organisation) Ram Lal urged the public, especially youths, to vote for the party in the ensuing general election to see Narendra Modi as the Prime Minister. He recalled that Modi, after becoming chairman of the party’s Campaigning Committee, first visited Puri to seek Lord Jagannath’s blessings before embarking on a countrywide tour. He urged party workers to make Modi’s February 11 rally in Bhubaneswar a great success.
Lal said the BJP has decided to knock at every citizen’s door with an appeal to cast their votes to make Modi the next Prime Minister. He discussed how to effectively manage booths. Odisha is crucial for the BJP as elections for both State Assembly and Parliament are to be held simultaneously here, he said.
BJP State observer Arun Singh said the BJD is responsible for the poverty of Odisha and its Government cannot escape from its liability in the coal and chit fund scams.
BJP leader and former Deputy Speaker of Assembly Rama Chandra Panda said that interestingly common people are ahead of the BJP in creating public opinion for Narendra Modi as the next Prime Minister since they believe that Modi is the right person to lead the national Government as ‘Bikas Purush’. Among others, the party’s senior leader Prasanna Mishra, Ganjam district president Bijay Swain and Bhrugu Buxipatra also spoke.
A public signature campaign was launched by party town president Rama Patra demanding to expedite the Janibilla-Dakshinpur piped water project. The party aims to collect signatures of 50.000 persons from the district for expeditious water supply to Brahmapur. The movement is spearheaded by senior BJP leader Rama Chandra Panda.
