BHUBANESWAR: The State BJP has started the process for analysing reasons behind the lacklustre performance of the party in the State during the last polls, by deciding to constitute teams of observers for all the 21 Lok Sabha constituencies.

The teams will visit the Lok Sabha and Assembly constituencies to identify the reasons behind the unimpressive performance of the party despite the Modi wave. Odisha in-charge Arun Singh and general secretary (organisation) Prasanna Mishra will constitute the observer teams after consultation with senior party leaders.

The teams will initiate their interaction with the grassroots level leaders and district leaders from July 15 by visiting the Assembly and Parliamentary constituencies.

They will analyse the vote share of the party in 2014 elections and identify the strengths and weaknesses of the party, Singh said in a statement.

Singh said based on the reports of the teams, a State-level review meeting of the BJP’s performance will be held here. Senior leaders, State office-bearers and defeated candidates will attend the meeting.

Sources said an action plan will be prepared at the meeting keeping the 2019 elections in view. Steps will be initiated to strengthen the party at booth level as per the recommendations of the team of observers.

Central observer and Union Minister of State for Environment and Forests Prakash Javadekar had said on Friday that though the party won only one Lok Sabha and 10 Assembly seats, the party’s vote share increased by about 50 per cent compared to the previous polls.

Increase in BJP’s vote share sounds like a warning bell for the ruling BJD in Odisha as the difference between votes bagged by the two parties is not very big, he said.
