Bhubaneswar, Aug 20:
The BJP Central leadership may be squeamish about projecting Narendra Modi as the party’s Prime Ministerial candidate. But it is the Gujarat Chief Minister who has apparently inspired hundreds of youth from Khurda district to join the saffron party on Tuesday.
“About 800 youth from the peripheral areas of Bhubaneswar today joined BJP in the presence of party state president KV Singhdeo. They have all been inspired by Modi,” said general secretary of BJP’s youth wing Umakanta Pattnaik.
The party welcomed the youth by organizing a rally here. Later, they were inducted into the party in the presence of several senior leaders.
