After the Neda meeting - helmed by BJP national chief Amit Shah - was held in New Delhi, Neda convener and Assam finance minister Himanta Biswa Sarma spoke to the leaders of both parties and invited them to attend Neda's meeting on September 23 in Guwahati, BJP sources said. 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.

"We also know that BJD is such a party where one has to belong to Biju Parivar to take over the reins of the party in Odisha", Shah, who began his 3-day Odisha visit to galvanise the BJP workers in the state, said.

"NEDA has formed governments in five of the eight north-east states". He also holds meetings with BJP members, office bearers, leaders and intellectuals to hear their problems and discuss the roadmap for the upcoming elections.

He further criticised Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik for celebrating his best administrator award given by news magazine. But, we are not getting the state's required support to take up the developmental projects. "This govt can do everything to defend the country", said Shah.

On the Mahanadi water dispute between Odisha and Chhattisgarh, he said the process was on to constitute a tribunal to resolve the issue and assured that the Centre would not allow Odisha to be deprived of the river water.

"The Modi government has made arrangements for the upliftment of poor dalits and backward classes".

Some defecting legislators are expected to join the BJP in Shah's presence.

Cabinet reshuffle done, BJP chief Amit Shah is now working on revamping the party by inducting fresh faces, seeking to gift Prime Minister Narendra Modi a record victory in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls. The BJP is planning to contest on all the assembly seats.
