BJP's Amit Shah will inaugurate the second meeting of the NEDA in New Delhi

"Development was halted during the Congress rule", the BJP President added.

The NEDA is a political coalition that was formed on May 24, 2016 by the BJP, along with regional political parties like the Naga People's Front, the Sikkim Democratic Front, the People's Party of Arunachal, the Asom Gana Parishad and the Bodoland People's Front in north-east India.

Each full-timer is being assigned nine booths in a constituency and tasked with creating a winnable environment for the party.Earlier, Shah was given a rousing reception when he touched down at Bhubaneswar airport on Wednesday morning and was taken to the State Guest House in a motorcycle rally. "This is not possible because there is internal democracy in the BJP".

Odisha BJP in-charge Arun Singh claimed the party will win 120 of the 147 seats in Odisha while the BJD, Congress and others will share the remaining seats among themselves.

The Bharatiya Janata Party has cancelled its Nagrik Sammelan in Kolkata where party president Amit Shah was scheduled to address on September 12. "This govt can do everything to defend the country", said Shah.

The BJP said it had to cancel the event - where a huge number of people were expected to come - due to lack of venue.

BJP national spokesperson Sambit Patra said the people of Odisha had now "developed doubts" in the Chief Minister over his "non-performance". The irony is the chief minister has failed to learn Odia in such a long period, he said.
