No coalition with BJD, BJP to fight 2024 polls alone in Odisha

Bhubaneswar: Putting all speculations regarding any possible coalition with BJD in Odisha to rest, the BJP today announced that it would fight the upcoming Lok Sabha and Assembly elections in the state alone.

“The Bharatiya Janata Party will go solo in all 21 Lok Sabha and 147 Assembly seats in Odisha in the upcoming twin polls,” said BJP state unit president Manmohan Samal in a Twitter (X) posts today.

Under the able leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the BJP will contest the elections alone to fulfill the aspirations of 4.5 crore Odias. The BJP’s motto is to bring rapid development to Odisha as well as India, Samal added.

The BJP leader thanked the Biju Janata Dal (BJD) in Odisha for extending support to the BJP-led government at the Centre on various issues for last 10 years.

“We have observed that the states having BJP governments have achieved rapid progress. The BJP governments have done extremely well in the implementation of the welfare schemes introduced by the Narendra Modi government at the Centre. However, the benefits of many such schemes are yet to reach the common people in Odisha. We have many differences with the ruling BJD in Odisha on various issues,” said Samal while apparently explaining his party’s decision to go solo in Odisha in the 2024 polls.
