BJP Will Try to Come to Power in Odisha in 2019 : Naidu
23 April 2017, 02:22 | Maryann Sutton
Addressing some 200 of BJP's senior leadership team, the Prime Minister said that exploitation of Muslim women must end but at the same time it should not end up dividing the community.
Shah, who was felicitated with a garland of 74 lotus flowers, symbolizing the halfway mark in the 147-member Odisha assembly yesterday asserted the BJP's golden era will commence when it will have the Chief Ministers in every state.
As several events took place for many years of the freedom struggle, it is important to remember all such events, he said.
"The main theme of the Prime Minister's address was socio-economic transformation of India, good and corruption-free governance".
The Prime Minister was received at the Biju Patnaik International Airport by the Chief Secretary and DGP of the state.
He was speaking after Prime Minister Narendra Modi had inaugurated the meeting.
Though Governor SC Jamir had not gone to the airport to receive the Prime Minister, he was present there to give a warm send-off to Modi.
The BJP's focus on OBCs and Modi's remarks on the backwardness of Muslim society and Triple Talaq is seen as the party's effort to woo these social groups ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha polls. "We have performed very well in Odisha and our karyakartas requested us, that is why we are conducting the meet here", said Madhav.
"The present commission is "powerless" and can not do justice to the OBCs, Javadekar said while asserting that the central government is firm on the bill's passage".
In what has been termed as the "resurgence" of the party in the state, the BJP won on 294 seats out of the 849 seats that went to the polls, which is nearly 10 times what it won in the last election. But the party's president Amit Shah believes this is just the beginning.
The resolution also called upon party workers to take a pledge to work hard to win the confidence of the people.
The party's gold era, he said, will coincide with India's golden era and it will emerge as a great nation in the world.
India is a rich country with poor people, Modi said, and blamed corruption and "visionless governments" of the past for its current condition.
BJP president Amit Shah on Sunday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi's image was an "unassailable asset" for the party and the verdict in the recent assembly polls was an expression of people's faith in the PM and the party organisation.
"We were weak in Odisha".
Shah, in his speech, said that 14 per cent people in Odisha were denied safe drinking water, 22 per cent did not have toilet and 41 per cent lacked quality electricity. "We know how to fight back", he said.
