Pradhan may be BJP's CM face for Odisha

Talking to media after the concluding session of the meeting, senior BJP leader Nitin Gadkari said, senior BJP leader and Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked the party to reach out to poor Muslims, who have not benefitted much in all these years. Indeed, this point in BJP's his-tory could be seen as its peak.

The government seeks to present before the present and future generations the sacrifices made by the tribal communities in the country's freedom struggle, he said at a function organised at the Raj Bhavan here.

Tearing into the Opposition for raking up a slew of issues particularly the Electronic Voting Machine (EVM) matter, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday asserted that the former was trying to churn up rows particularly ahead of the MCD polls.

The people of UP rejected family politics, caste politics and a "non-performing" government, he said referring to Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik who has been carrying forward his father Biju Patnaik's legacy.

According to HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar, nearly three years since the Prime Minister led the BJP to a majority in the Lok Sabha, the hope he had generated has now turned into a faith that he as the leader and the BJP as the political vehicle will steer India to a better future.

The Congress leader further said the Prime Minister had visited the State many times and each time the people of the State expected a lot from the Prime Minister but he had disappointed them every time.

Bhubaneswar (Odissha): Facing the CPM attacks against the Rashtria Swayamsevak Sangh and the Bharatiya Janata Party with poise, the party will wreak its vengeance by establishing its clout and presence in Kerala, national president Amit Shah has said. He also asked party leaders to not to get strayed into giving "misleading statements". The meeting, being held in Odisha after a gap of 20 years, is being attended by 13 BJP chief ministers, 98 permanent members, cabinet ministers and special invitees.

The Muslim Personal Law Board-a non-governmental body that interprets Muslim Personal Law in India-has opposed the BJP's move.

There was not a single BJP MLA in the previous assembly but in the Assembly elections in 2017, BJP got 36.3 per cent of the votes and won 21 seats. "We were also weak in north eastern states like Assam and Manipur. This trust and faith in the minds and hearts of the millions of common people has been proved again in the mandate and overwhelming support given to the party in the last many elections", the resolution said.

The prime minister also tweeted about his itinerary on his official Twitter account.

"We will also win Odisha", Shah said at the meeting.
