The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) conducted the ‘Bhoomi Puja’ for the upcoming ‘Mahasangram’ rally to be addressed by its national President Amit Shah at the UNIT 6 playground in Bhubaneswar. The BJP is leaving no stones unturned to make the rally a grand success.
Shah, who will be on a two-day visit on January 6-7, will address a massive rally to be attended by an estimated people of over two lakh. Senior BJP leader Bijay Mohapatra told the media that the rally would expose the BJD Government in Odisha, which is already neck-deep in corruption.
Hundreds of people have joined the BJP today in Cuttack. The mainly came from the Congress and BJD. BJP’s Odisha Unit President KV Singhdeo, Union Minister for Petroleum & Natural Gas, Dharmendra Pradhan and other senior leaders Sameer Dey, Dillip Mallick and Hrushiesh Jena were among those who were present at the occasion.
Key people who joined the BJP today, included Bhajan Samrat and Singer Banabihari Jena, Gagan Bihari Jena, Sarada Jena and Pritam Das. They were accompanied by hundreds of supporters. The BJP has launched an aggressive campaign to increase its membership across the state. Many top leaders and bureaucrats are expected to join the BJP in the presence of Amit Shah on January 6.
KV Singhdeo has already hinted at many BJD and Congress leaders joining the BJP apart from leaders from other political outfits. To prevent any possible exodus of BJD leaders, CM Naveen Patnaik has already announced the plan to form a Legislative Council in Odisha, which can accommodate 49 members. It is seen as a good rehabilitation package by the BJD supremo.
