Bhubaneswar, September 7: While the President of Bhartiya Janata Party, Amit Shah is on his 3-day visit in Odisha aims to strengthen the saffron in the state. After receiving the warm welcome at Biju Patnaik International Airport Amit Shah held the meeting where he spoke about the work done by BJP and also spoke about the failures of administration of BJD and Congress. Highlighting 'Mission 120' BJP Prez Amit Shah expressed a firm confidence for coming to power in 2019 elections.
While addressing the intellectuals during a meet in Odisha, BJP President Amit Shah said that Naveen Patnaik government as ‘defunct transformer’, Narendra Modi as a ‘powerhouse’. While digging at Naveen Patnaik, he said that the irony is the chief minister has failed to learn Odia in such a long period.
Hitting out at nepotism which favours appointing the head from family Amit Shah said that "I and all of you know who will take over the Congress after Sonia Gandhi. We also know that BJD is such a party where one has to belong to Biju Parivar to take over the reins of the party in Odisha. However, a tea-seller could become the Prime Minister of India and a booth-level worker like me could become the President of BJP, the world's biggest political party having 11 Crore members," Shah said.
The BJP will come to power in Odisha with the two-thirds majority in the next assembly elections, said Amit Shah. Further Amit Shah teased Naveen Patnaik saying that "let Naveenji learn mathematics. The poll outcome and number of seats will be known the day votes are counted. Let him learn how to count till 120, on counting day at 10.30 am BJP will win 120 seats and form the government with the two-third majority.”
"If Narendra Modi can be described as a power house, Naveenji may be compared to a damaged transformer," he said, adding the people of Odisha now want a political change after having given several opportunities to the Congress and BJD to govern. Wrapping up the speech Amit Shah appealed to the intellectuals for trying out BJP once, said that "now they have got a chance to try the BJP and taste good governance.”
