Bhubaneswar: BJP President Amit Shah arrived here today to discuss with party workers how to achieve ‘Mission 120’ – winning 120 out of the total 147 Assembly seats – in Odisha in the 2019 elections.
With his three-day visit to the state, Shah will start his 110-day nationwide tour to strengthen the saffron party across the country.
Shah is scheduled to hold meetings with party leaders and activists, including party MPs and MLAs, in phases at the State party headquarters in the afternoon.
In the evening, Shah is scheduled to meet a group of intellectuals in a private hotel in the State Capital.
Challenging Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik’s four consecutive tenures in Odisha, Shah had announced during his last visit to the state in July that the BJP would form the government in the state in 2019 by winning as many as 120 MLA seats out of total 147 assembly segments,.
