 With the Congress deciding to prepare a blueprint to strengthen the party organisation in the State, the Biju Janata Dal (BJD) has decided to flex its muscles by holding a massive rally of its youth wing in the Capital.

The Biju Yuva Janata Dal (BYJD) will hold its rally in Bhubaneswar on April 7 after the budget session of the Assembly will be over on April 6. The State executive of the BYJD will meet here on Sunday to discuss preparations for the rally and select the speakers.

Sources said several ministers will attend the rally to defend the State Government, which is facing criticism from Opposition for growing atrocities against women in the State. The image of the party has also taken a downward plunge because of the dowry torture charges against senior BJD leader Raghunath Mohanty and his family members.

Meanwhile, four senior Congress leaders, who met Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi in New Delhi recently, have submitted their suggestions to strengthen the party jointly.

 Rahul had asked the four senior leaders, Union Minister Srikant Jena, Kalahandi MP Bhakta Charan Das, former OPCC president Jaydev Jena and former working president of the OPCC Lalatendu Bidyadhar Mohapatra to work collectively under whoever may be the party chief in the State.

Jena told this paper that the suggestions have already been submitted to Rahul and now it is for him to take action.

Besides the four leaders, Rahul had also met Nabarangpur MP Pradip Majhi to take inputs on how to strengthen party organisation in the State ahead of the 2014 elections.
