Shah is already excited at the BJP graduating from the third to second spot in Odisha in the recent panchayat polls and he chose to hold the executive in the state to give a clear message to the ruling BJD that the BJP is all set to make a dent in the state. Amit Shah said that we need to work toward this. "They are not admitting their defeat and instead blaming EVMs", he said.
What boosted the party's prospects is the recently concluded panchayat polls, where the BJP emerged second, relegating the Congress party to third position.
BJP president Amit Shah garlanded the statue of Dr B R Ambedkar at A G Chhak, near the Secretariat, upon his arrival. "But the assembly election results have changed that perception", Prasad said.
Sources said that the party was initially planning to hold the National Executive meeting in Lucknow in view of the grand success in the UP Assembly elections.
"We were also weak in north eastern states like Assam and Manipur". "So EVMs were alright when the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) won in 2007, and the Samajwadi Party won in 2012 in Uttar Pradesh, but not now". The golden age is not just for the BJP, but for India.
