Odisha BJP expects 1 lakh people at Amit Shah meeting

Bhubaneswar, December 17: The Odisha BJP expects a congregation of over one lakh people at a public meeting of party national president Amit Shah here on January 6, on the first day of his two-day visit to Odisha. 

Party Odisha unit president KV Singh Deo told reporters here that the public meeting will be held at a field located backside the Capital Hospital in Unit VI area.
“Though we appealed to the State administration for allowing us to hold the public meeting at PMG Square, the administration denied permission on the plea that no political meeting has been allowed at the site since last three years and Section 144 of CrPC is enforced at the site throughout the year,” said Singh Deo.

“While agitators have been holding demonstrations and public meetings with police protection along the Mahatma Gandhi Marg and PMG Square then why the BJP was denied permission,” Singh Deo demanded to know.

According to Singh Deo, Shah will reach the city airport at 9.25 am on January 6 and will be present at the public meeting at Unit VI field from 11.30 am to 2pm. Later, he will hold discussions with party leaders between 3.30 pm and 7 pm the same day.

After holding discussions with leaders, Shah will leave for Puri on January 6 evening and have darshan of Lord Jagannath next day. After his Puri visit, Shah will reach Bhubaneswar at 11.45 am and again hold talks with party leaders.

Shah would hold a Press conference at 3.45 pm and leave for Delhi at 5.50 pm, Singh Deo added.
