The newly elected president of the BJP’s State unit K V Singhdeo on Wednesday ruled out possibility of electoral alliance either with the ruling BJD or the Odisha Jana Morcha before the next general elections.

 Exuding confidence of a better performance by the BJP in the next polls, Singhdeo told a meeting organised for welcoming him at the State party office here that the BJP has enough strength to take on the BJD in the next elections. The party will go to the polls with development agenda and highlight the failures of the Government on all fronts.

 Launching a scathing attack on the BJD Government, Singhdeo said a series of scams has exposed the “clean image” of Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik, who is presiding over a corrupt Government.

 Alleging the Chief Minister’s involvement in Sainik Mining deal and multi-crore mining scam has been established, Singhdeo, also Leader of the BJP Legislature Party, said Naveen is likely to face the same fate of former chief minister of Jharkhand Madhu Koda, who is now behind bars.  “I have doubts whether Naveen will lead the BJD in the next elections or somebody else,” he remarked.

 The Chief Minister has nothing to his credit even after 13 years in power. The State is facing acute power shortage. The Government has not been able to create additional irrigation potential for even an acre of agricultural land. Singhdeo did not even spare the Congress-led UPA Government at the Centre.  Repeating Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi’s quote at the recent meeting of the BJP’s national executive committee in Delhi, Singhdeo said, “The Congress is for commission, while the BJP is for a mission.”

 “We want industrialisation for sustainable development, but not at the cost of farmers,” he said and assured that BJP will always fight for the armers. Scotching rumours of his joining BJD, Singhdeo said he is not the one who changes political parties frequently. “I will be in the BJP till the last drop of my blood,” he said.

 Leaders of faction-ridden party put up a united face while welcoming Singhdeo for his new assignment. Leaders of different groups pledged their support to him. Singhdeo, on his arrival from Delhi, was given a rousing welcome at the party office. He was brought in a motorcycle rally from Biju Patnaik Airport.
