Bhubaneswar: While the Odisha unit of BJP is pumped up with party’s national president Amit Shah’s visit to the state with an aim to accomplish ‘Mission 120+’ (To win over 120 seats in assembly polls), Chief Minister and BJD supremo Naveen Patnaik today said Shah’s visit will have no impact.
On being asked by reporters about the possibility of any impact of the BJP chief’s visit, Patnaik said, “I don’t see any impact.”
The conch party head also reiterated his ‘doubt’ over the chances of BJP achieving the ‘120+’ target in the general elections in Odisha.
“I doubt whether they will get so many seats in the next elections,” Patnaik said.
Replying to Shah’s remarks of BJP’s rivals growing old, Naveen said, “I don’t know what he is doubting of my age.”
“Some think it is impossible to get 120 seats and form the government in Odisha. But, let me tell you they (political rivals) have grown old whereas the BJP has young leadership,” Shah had said yesterday at a press conference here.
