Mr. Vishnu Kumar Raju who is also the BJP floor leader in AP said that it would be a good opportunity both for the State and the city, as the PM and all the top Ministers and the leaders will be present in the city for two days.
Earlier, Prime Minister Modi called on the BJP to tackle the triple talaq issue at the district level.
Shah exhorted party workers to ensure the BJP symbol bloomed in every booth in the country. "This was pitched by the Prime Minister", Gadkari said.
"It's time for taking a long jump towards building a new India and rewrite history".
Speaking on phone while he was finding it tough to keep pace with PM's auto route, he said: 'I have not seen such a response in Bhubaneswar for any BJP leader.I have been in politics for over 35 years now.
At the airport, state unit leaders will give a grand welcome to Modi. "His inclusion will be a boost for us in Odisha and as we have seen in Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Assam (Himanta Biswa Sarma), the party leadership is not averse to inducting leaders from the opposition party", a party functionary said.
Speaking at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national executive meeting in Bhubaneswar, the Prime Minister expressed his frustration at the Opposition. "We can't simply move forward on a slow pace, but charge ahead with full speed", the Prime Minister said.
Top party leaders, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, were in attendance as he asked the organisation to resolve for victory in the next round of assembly elections due in Himachal Pradesh, Gujarat and Karnataka, noting that a similar resolve was made a year ago during the national executive meeting in Allahabad for five state elections, including in Uttar Pradesh.
Amit Shah said he would like his party to win in leftist states like West Bengal, Kerala, and Tripura, too, besides stand-alone states like Odisha.
Talking about the all round development of the country in terms of economy and social equality, the Prime Minister emphasized on envisaging an India sans discrimination of any kind. In the meeting, BJP is said to have decided to make the state "a lab for the Centre's various welfare schemes", with an eye on the 2019 Lok Sabha and Assembly elections in the state.
Assembly elections in Odisha are two years away which would be held along with the Lok Sabha election in 2019. "The BJP will attain its peak when BJP will have Chief Ministers in all the states and it has members everywhere - from panchayats to Parliament", Shah added, according to Prasad. In a sarcastic attack, Shah said that when United Progressive Alliance won the 2004 and 2009 general elections or the Bahujan Samaj Party and Samajwadi Party won the Uttar Pradesh elections in 2007 and 2012, then there was no problem, but now all of sudden questions are being raised about EVMs.
