Bhubaneswar: BJP chief Amit Shah is scheduled to begin his two-day visit to Odisha from Wednesday, during which he would meet party leaders to discuss a strategy for the forthcoming general elections.
Shah would address a public meeting at the Lal Bahadur Stadium in Bhawanipatna of Kalahandi district on Wednesday afternoon. A vast number of people are expected to attend the meeting, by which the party wants to prove its strength in western Odisha.
Next day, Shah would address youth members of the party at a meeting at Balangir.
During his visit, Shah would also meet the BJP State core committee members and office-bearers to discuss party’s strategy for the forthcoming general elections, party sources said.
Shah’s visit after the party’s defeat in the Bijepur Assembly by-election is expected to galvanise the party cadres and State leaders to take on the ruling BJD.
BJP State president Basant Panda said Shah is working hard to ensure that the BJP wins a majority and forms a Government in Odisha. His visit would boost the morale of the party in the State.
