  • Ahead of 2024 polls, BJD and BJP to hold major organisational meetings on Thursday

    BJD chief and chief minister Naveen Patnaik will meet the leaders of the party’s frontal organisations such as Biju Mahila Janata Dal, Biju Chhatra Janata Dal, Biju Yuva Janata Dal and the minority wing on Thursday and Friday

    Odisha’s ruling Biju Janata Dal (BJD) and opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) are all set to start preparing for the 2024 general as well as assembly elections in the state on Thursday with chief minister and BJD chief Naveen Patnaik addressing leaders of party’s frontal organisation and BJP national president JP Nadda addressing the booth level workers of the party.

    The BJD has already started organisational restructuring with Patnaik appointing senior observers and revamping the youth, student and women wings. The party is also restarting its month-long Jan Sampark padyatra from October 2 on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti when its workers, MLAs, MPs and panchayat leaders will pledge to dedicate themselves to the development of the state. During the yatra, party members would celebrate the birth anniversaries of renowned social activist Gopabandhu Dash and Loknayak Jayaprakash Narayan on 9 and 11 respectively.

    The BJP, on the other hand, will hold a major public meeting of at least 30,000 Shakti kendra (booth level organisation) workers in Bhubaneswar on Thursday to be addressed by party president JP Nadda. Beginning with Union home minister Amit Shah’s visit to the state in August this year, the party has been trying to keep its cadres enthused with a flurry of visits by more than a dozen union ministers over the last month

    Early this month, the party held a three-day training camp for all its MLAs, MPs as well as district officer bearers at Puri town where national general secretary(organisation) BL Santosh asked the state leaders to complete the unfinished task assigned by Amit Shah during his recent visit to the state.

    Odisha BJP general secretary Golak Mohapatra said after addressing the shakti kendra workers on Thursday morning, Nadda will meet party MLAs, MPs, State functionaries, district presidents and in-charge of districts and the state. The next day he will address a joint conference of district-level functionaries of BJP’s seven frontal wings before returning to Delhi.

    “We have been told that the booth-level organisation has to be strengthened to put up a challenge to BJD in 2024 polls. Unless that is done, it is futile to have any other strategy. The task is cut out for us and we have been told what all to do in the next one and half years,” said a BJP leader, who attended the Puri meeting.
