Modi pitches for justice to Muslim women

Bhubaneswar: After the hoopla of the BJP National Executive Meet where the biggest leaders of the party at Centre visited Odisha on April 15 and 16 and claimed BJP will emerge victor in the next Assembly elections of the state, it seems the party's wish to keep the buzz on here has only grown. If the BJP, under Mr Modi's leadership, is able to make a dent into a section of the Muslim vote, his party is likely to become immeasurably stronger than it has been so far. Making an intervention during the BJP national executive meeting, Mr. Modi said, even Muslim communities have backwards, who are marginalised, and it was the duty of the BJP to take the fruits of development to them.

"This time also the Prime Minister had disappointed the people of the State by not uttering a word about Constitution of a Inter-state river tribunal to resolve the Mahanadi water dispute issue between Odisha and Chhattisgarh.

From the soil of Odisha, the party should pledge to build a New India, where good governance and power to the poor should be the mantra", he said. "He will connect with booth-level workers and strategise the plan for strengthening the party", said Union Tribal Affairs Minister Jual Oram.

The BJP NEC passed a resolution condemning the Opposition and the Congress for stalling the proposal for according constitutional status to the OBC Commission.

He said the Mandal was delighted with Prime Minister Narendra Modi's stand on triple talaq and insisted that the government must not budge from its stand.

Later, BJD leaders took a dig at the BJP-led government at the Centre for ignoring the genuine demands of the state.

These and the tampering of EVMs were seasonal issues that "got manufactured" in the Opposition factories, said Modi.

Shah has asked party workers to go the extra mile to strengthen the party in 120 Lok Sabha constituencies where it is weak. He reportedly spoke about "justice for Muslim women" in the context of triple talaq during the meeting. Now, that hope among people has transformed into trust and confidence in the BJP.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi's two day "talking point state visit" gave many selfie moments to the locals during the road show. He introduced a new political thought for new India which is aimed at achieving socio-economic equality in line with Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyay's Antyodaya vision; his vision is directed towards Four Es - Ethics, Economy, Ecology and Environment. Another resolution also condemned the manner in which Congress and other parties are playing politics in this connection and stalling the bill.
