Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik said the party would start a similar programme “Aama Sahara, Aama Urnati” with similar objectives for urban areas. The NAC and Municipality committees would comprise 50 members, and municipal corporation wards of 100 members.
“Ward committees are the foot soldiers of the party and I want them to be truly representative,” Patnaik told party leaders and workers.
He said district observers would send regular reports to the State committee and he would directly talk to ward committee leaders.
