Political Parties Plan Mass outreach Programs in Odisha


The ruling BJD, opposition BJP, Congress, and AAP have set the ball rolling in Odisha ahead of the 2024 general election by addressing grassroots party workers. Considering the 2024 Lok Sabha elections and state polls, political parties in Odisha are working hard to ensure they’re leaving no stone unturned, from connecting with their workers to reaching out to the public.

According to the insider’s report, the ruling Biju Janata Dal (BJD) will hold a virtual conference on September 29, with party supremo and state Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik addressing the frontal organisations, including women, students, youths and minority wings through video link.

On 29 September, BJP president JP Nadda will address 20,000 BJP workers from the panchayat level at Janata Maidan in Bhubaneswar. The virtual program is seen as the BJD’s attempt to steal the show from JP Nadda, who is set to visit the state on the same day. The politics in Odisha is heating up as the ruling Biju Janata Dal (BJD) and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) gear up for the next general elections, which are two years away.

The rivalry between the two parties has become sharper since the last elections, which saw the BJP emerging as the main opposition party in the state after pushing Congress to the third spot. The BJP, which won 23 seats in the state assembly against Congress’s nine, also put up an impressive show in the simultaneously held Lok Sabha polls, winning eight out of the 21 seats at stake.

The success seems to have made the BJP more ambitious and adventurous, with party leaders attacking the ruling BJD at every possible opportunity. The stakes are high for both the parties in 2024 when BJP would be making a serious bid for power in the state and BJD, led by chief minister Naveen Patnaik would attempt to rewrite history by becoming the first party ever to register a sixth straight win at the hustings. Naveen, who is already an icon for lakhs of his flowers across the state, could achieve legendary status with a victory in 2024.

In the history of politics, the most successful regional party of Odisha, the BJD, is looking to further unite its position by piling organisational activities until the next elections. The Biju Janata Dal has also announced a one-month Jan Sampark Padyatra 2022 from October 2 to inform the public about the pro-people initiatives taken by the Naveen Patnaik Government.

The party leaders will travel across the state for a month to connect with people at all levels, from cities and blocks to districts. The parties have created detailed programs for the yatra, which will conclude on November 2 with all the party leaders participating in a mass oath-taking ceremony to dedicate themselves to the service of the state’s people.
