Bhubaneswar, Sept 20: Ahead of the BJP national President JP Nadda’s visit to the state, opposition leader Jayanarayan Mishra on Tuesday claimed that the party will form the government in Odisha after the 2024 elections.
JP Nadda is scheduled to arrive in Odisha on a two-day visit on September 29.
“Nothing happens in a single day. We are going through various phases in order to form government in Odisha and preparations in this regard are underway,” said Mishra, who returned to the state after meeting Union Home Minister Amit Shah and JP Nadda in New Delhi yesterday.
On the other hand, the ruling BJD said the saffron party is daydreaming.
“Before the 2019 polls, the BJP had set a target of winning over 120 seats in Odisha. But how many seats the party bagged,” BJD MLA Saroj Kumar Meher asked.
“The BJP is daydreaming of forming a government in the state. The results of the recently held municipality and panchayat elections show that the people of the state have full faith and trust in Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik,” said Meher.
