Bhubaneswar: The popularity of Prime Minister Narendra Modi is rising by the day and people are inching closer towards BJP, said party’s Odisha in-charge Arun Singh.
On the recent survey conducted by ABP news that claimed that BJP will grab 13 Lok Sabha seats in Odisha, Singh said the BJP will make clean sweep in Odisha in 2019. “People are all aware that BJD has dipped in corruption and BJP is the only alternative which can provide good governance in State,” he added.
Terming BJD’s programme like Biju Yuva Vahini or the Ama Gaon Ama Bikash Programme as lollipop for people, he said there are many fronts lin health sector, education, communication in which the BJD-led government has utterly failed. Teachers and gram sathis have been cheated by the government, Singh said.
On the speculation of PM Modi contesting from Puri in next poll, Singh said it all depends on him and party’s parliamentary board. People across the country want Modi to contest from tier areas, Singh maintained.
On the other hand, Puri MLA and Minister Maheswar Mohanty said Modi’s candidature will not impact on BJD’s prospect in Puri. People have trust on BJD. BJP is misleading people to gain political mileage, he added.
