Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah will inaugurate the second meeting of the party-led North-East Democratic Alliance or NEDA in New Delhi on Tuesday. According to reports from FirstPost, he reached Odhisa on Wednesday for a three-day visit to devise plans for accomplishing "Mission 120"- win 120 out of the 147 seats in the state assembly.

Paul Lyngdoh, leader of the UDP said, "Though there is no proposal for pre-poll alliance (with BJP), but we will keep the spirit of NEDA alive and ensure that we keep the Congress out of power in the next elections". "But, only the BJP and Communist parties have internal democracy which is not found anywhere else including the Congress and BJD", Shah said addressing a meeting with intellectuals here. So, during his Odisha visit, he would be discussing with BJP leaders, MLAs and workers the strategies for achieving the party's target of winning 120 seats. In five of the eight states, we have chief ministers who are members of the NEDA.

Mounting a scathing attack on Chief Minister and BJD supremo Naveen Patnaik without naming him, Shah said; "Getting an award from some magazine doesn't mean development".

"Works of around Rs 4 lakh crore have been declared by the Centre for Odisha. In comparison to other states, Odisha is far behind despite central support", Shah said.

"The Modi government has made several provisions for the uplift of poor Dalits and backward classes".

Maintaining that dynastic politics dominated most parties including the Congress, the BJP president asked the gathering as to who will be the president of the oldest party of India after Sonia Gandhi and said the answer was obvious.

Accompanied by Union Petroleum and Natural Gas (PNG) Minister Dharmendra Pradhan and state BJP president Basant Panda, Shah visited the 11th century Shiva shrine.
