Apr 16, 2017, 01:05

All party bigwigs, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP President Amit Shah, LK Advani and Murali Manohar Joshi, are participating in the party's highest policy making body conclave. But BJP National President Amit Shah, who arrived in the Odisha Capital on Friday, is believed to have moved the convention to Bhubaneswar himself, with his focus on the 2019 Lok Sabha and Odisha Assembly elections, according to The New Indian Express. "BJP is growing in Odisha and we are trying to come to power here in 2019", Naidu added. "But our ultimate aim should be to restore the "golden era" of our country", he told party workers. "We discussed the various issues plaguing Odisha".

These areas include 25 seats of Andhra Pradesh, 19 of Kerala, 21 of Odisha, 39 of Tamil Nadu, 17 of Telangana, 42 of West Bengal, 40 of Bihar, 48 of Maharashtra and over a dozen states in other parts of the region.

The party is holding a national executive meet in Bhubaneswar today.

The duo, along with 300 other party colleagues, will hold a closed-door brainstorming session over the weekend, taking stock of the political situation, highlighting the recent electoral successes and crediting them entirely to Modi's leadership and BJP chief Shah's strategy. The two-day meet of BJP heavyweights comes at a crucial juncture, as the NDA government completes three years of its term next month and gets ready to contest several state polls including those of Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh before the2.

The BJP also challenged Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to accept the open challenege of Election Commission to hack EVMs. Shah himself will tour the country extensively for 95 days till September. But actually, the BJP is yet to reach its peak.

Just over a month after BJP's encouraging performance in Odisha panchayat elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi touched down at Biju Patnaik Airport here on a warm Saturday afternoon and braved the heat to connect with people on his 4-km long road show. "We will focus on capacity building and strengthening the party, and face the saffron party in the State". Earlier in the day, state units presented their report during the office bearers' meeting.
