  • North East Is An Important Part Of India, Modi Government Successful In Establishing Neda: Amit Shah

Shah in a meeting with the committee members yesterday had impressed upon them to chalk out a poll strategy and also discussed his proposed visit to the state on September 28, the sources said in Shillong.

"The demonetisation has not had any negative impact (on economic growth)".

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has made a decision to fight the Odisha elections solo, informed its national president Amit Shah on Thursday who is on a three-day tour to Odisha. According to reports from FirstPost, he reached Odhisa on Wednesday for a three-day visit to devise plans for accomplishing "Mission 120"- win 120 out of the 147 seats in the state assembly.

Bharatiya Janata Party is leaving no stone unturned to make inroads into the north eastern states where Congress and other regional parties have been in power for decades.

"Some think it is impossible to get 120 seats and form the government in Odisha". He said this while addressing a meeting of intellectuals organized by state BJP in the state capital Bhubaneswar.

Putin: Trump Can't Disappoint Me, We're Not Married
North Korea on Sunday conducted its most powerful nuclear test to date, triggering USA warnings of a "massive military response ". These are not diplomats accredited by the US State Department, they are staff members of an global organization.

Criticising Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik for celebrating an award given by a news magazine to him, Shah said an award can not take the state forward when the government was involved in corruption. But we are not getting required support from the State to take up the developmental projects.

"The steps taken by Modi government in the last three years for the betterment of Odisha are unprecedented", he said. He said Congress once ruled from panchayat to Parliament, but it later failed the people of India.

Claiming that no previous government had given the amount of assistance to Odisha that the NDA government led by Narendra Modi had given, Shah sought an answer from the BJD government where all that money had gone.

The BJP blames the Trinamool Congress government, and Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for this. The BJP has just 10 MLAs in the assembly.
