Prasad also told media persons that the BJP chief would tour, for 95 days, different parts of the country till September.

Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan, who is the host of the session being held in his home state Odisha, is confident that the party will lay down the strategy for strides in the eastern and Coromandel coast.

The last executive committee meet on January 6, 7 in New Delhi was held in the run up to the assembly polls in five states.

Amit Shah said the government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi will complete three years in office on May 26 and it had worked hard during this period.

In the panchayat elections in the state in February, the saffron party was unable to win a higher number of seats than the Biju Janata Dal, which has been in power in Odisha for the past 17 years. Hitting out at the Left government in Kerala over the killing of the BJP and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) workers allegedly by communist cadres, he said his party will continue to oppose it peacefully and ensure that the "lotus blooms" there as well as Tripura, another Left-ruled state. "The Naveen Patnaik government has failed to provide basic amenities to the people in the state", he said.

The state BJP has mobilized around one lakh people, at least 50 each from all the organizational units across the state, to greet Prime Minister Narendra Modi when he arrives at Bhubaneswar this afternoon.

After a 20-minute halt at Raj Bhavan, Modi resumed his roadshow. He got off the vehicle and walked for about half-a-kilometre near Jaidev Vihar, mingling freely with the people before arriving at Janata Maidan, the venue of the two-day national executive.
