Narendra Modi is likely to contest the 2019 Lok Sabha election from Puri

Bhubaneswar:5/10/18: Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to contest the 2019 Lok Sabha election from the temple town of Puri.

“The Odisha party unit has extended offer for Modiji to contest from Puri Lok Sabha seat. Decision in this regard will be finalized in the BJP parliamentary board”, BJP state unit president Basant Panda told reporters here today.

In the event, Modi contests from Puri, BJP is hopeful to make the most of its seat share from Odisha and surrounding eastern states.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had sounded poll bugle during his visit to Odisha on September 22 and had launched scathing attack on Naveen Patnaik-led government blaming the State administration for all round failure.

Puri is a revered place of pilgrimage of Hindus and is the abode of Lord Vishnu, most popularly known as Lord Jagannath.
