BJD, BJP eye Youth Power in Odisha

ONI Bureau: While the ruling Biju Janata Dal (BJD) recently took initiatives to float ‘Biju Yuva Vahini’ under the Sports & Youth Services Department with an aim to uitlise their efforts to build the party at the grassroots level on the lines of Communist cadres, the BJP did not wish to fall behind.

The BJP has come up with a new programme – ‘Nua Odisha Nirman Abhiyan’ to counter BJD’s ‘Biju Yuva Vahini’. Under the programme, the party would identify 25 youths from each panchayat who will take oath on April 1 at Chandrabhaga. These youths will play a key role in the formation of ‘New Odisha’.

BJD’s ‘Biju Yuva Vahini’ will promote leadership and volunteerism, sports and sportsmanship and healthy living among youth. The government has planned to recruit youths for 8,000 units of Biju Yuva Vahini in 6,800 gram panchayats and 120 urban local bodies.
