Congress, BJD have no internal democracy, says Amit Shah

The North East Democratic Alliance (NEDA), a coalition of eight parties including the BJP, that already holds power in five of the eight northeastern states, have begun preparations to wrest power in the three remaining states of Tripura, Meghalaya and Mizoram. BJP president Amit Shah will be visiting Meghalaya on September 28.

"The BJP has set a target to win at least 120 seats in 2019 Assembly elections and we will surely achieve it".

"Some think it is impossible to get 120 seats and form the government in Odisha".

The BJP Starwalt also hit out at chief minister Naveen Patnaik for celebrating an award given by a news magazine to him. But, we are not getting the state's required support to take up the developmental projects. "The mood of the people is changing".

On the Mahanadi water dispute between Odisha and Chhattisgarh, he said the process was on to constitute a tribunal to resolve the issue and assured that the Centre would not allow Odisha to be deprived of the river water.

Shah's three-day visit would provide new energy to the party for the next polls, he said.

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.

Maintaining that dynastic politics dominated most parties including the Congress, the BJP president asked the gathering as to who will be the president of the oldest party of India after Sonia Gandhi and said the answer was obvious. "As the first step of one-on-one fight, six Trinamool Congress MLAs, along with lakhs of their followers, merged with BJP last month", a BJP leader said. The BJP is planning to contest on all the assembly seats.
