Number Predication by political party for upcoming election create a storm

Bhubaneswar:4/9/17:  Making mockery of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Biju Janata Dal (BJD) Vice President and Food Supplies and Consumer Welfare Minister Surya Narayan Patro today said his party will clinch at least 123 seats in the 2019 assembly elections.

The BJD veteran said that his party is eyeing to win all 147 seats in the upcoming polls.

“Though our party is targeting to win all the 147 seats, my assessment says we are damn confident of winning 123 seats,” he said.

He also reminded that Biju Patnaik’s (former Odisha Chief Minister and father of Naveen Patnaik) leadership had won 123 seats in 1990. The BJD is confident of repeating the same in 2019, he said.

However, the state BJP reacted sharply to it as its National President Amit Shah had set ‘Mission-120’ for 2019 Odisha assembly elections during his visit to the state in July this year.

Notably, Shah will arrive here at around 1 pm on Wednesday and attend the ‘Sankalpa Siddhi’ meeting on Friday during his three-day visit to the state.

Meanwhile, the outspoken veteran of Congress and former minister Suresh Routray too joined this number war and said that the Congress is confident of winning 85 seats in the 2019 Assembly elections
