Cuttack, Sep 25:
Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Spokesperson Ashutosh, who was in Cuttack today to address a convention of party workers, said that his party will win in 2019 polls and form government in Odisha.
“Our party beat the Modi wave to come to power in Delhi. We will form government in Punjab and Goa this time. Come 2019, we will form the government here. We need to uproot the Naveen Government that has looted the state since past 17 years,” said the journalist turned politician addressing the workers.
He further took on the incumbent Chief Minister of Odisha and questioned his qualification for the post.
“A man like him has no rights to be in power. What is his qualification? He is there as he is the son of Biju Patnaik. The State Government here is playing cheap vote bank politics. The people of Odisha will give Biju Janata Dal a fitting response in 2019 polls,” he added.
Biju Janata Dal, on the other hand, laughed off Ashutosh’s ambitious claims.
“Even the established parties here have failed to diminish the influence of BJD in electoral politics. AAP can come here and fight. Time will tell how realistic their claims are,” said BJD Spokesperson Sashi Bhusan Behera.
It may be mentioned here AAP failed to secure even one percent of the vote in 2014 Assembly polls.
