The National President of Bharatiya Janata Party, Shri Jagat Prakash Nadda released the BJP ‘Sankalp Patra’ for the upcoming Odisha Assembly Election on 05 May, 2024 in Bhubaneswar, Odisha. During the event, BJP National Vice President Shri Baijayant Panda, Odisha BJP President Shri Manmohan Samal, Manifesto Committee Head Shri Samir Mohanty, Smt. Aparajita Sarangi, Dr. Sambit Patra and other leaders were present.

Addressing the occasion, Shri Jagat Prakash Nadda highlighted how, over the past 10 years, the culture and practices of politics have changed under Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s leadership. One clear sign of this change is that the ‘Sankalp Patra’ has now become a serious document.

Not contesting elections to sit in opposition

Shri Nadda made it very clear that the Bharatiya Janata Party is not contesting elections today to sit in opposition but to contesting elections to come into government. The government led by Navin Patnaik has failed to fulfill many of its tall promises and achievements. Today, water is not reaching the fields, affecting 35% of our irrigated land, which has been exposed. Odisha also witnesses the highest rate of migration. The term “Dadan” resonates in every household, indicating the extent of migration happening in Odisha. The government of Odisha seems unconcerned about the reasons behind migration and why people are leaving.

Shri JP Nadda said that BJP is committed to reaching the people through the media and is striving to come into government. As I present the ‘Sankalp Patra’ before you, I want to convey that our goal is “Sankalp se Siddhi ki Or”. BJP will move from commitment to perfection and fulfill our commitments. This is not just a document; it’s BJP’s implementation program for the next five years.
