BHUBANESWAR: Odias living in other States have extended their support to boost the poll prospects of BJP by campaigning for the party across Odisha.A group of about 20 Odia youths from Gujarat, Mumbai, Bengaluru and Delhi have descended here to canvas for the saffron party and appeal to the people to re-elect Narendra Modi as Prime Minister and install a BJP Government in the State.

Flagging off a campaign vehicle which will carry these non-resident Odias called ‘Modi Sena’ to all the 30 districts, Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said these volunteers will make people aware of the achievements of NDA Government at the Centre under the leadership Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Pradhan said more such Odia volunteers living outside the State will join the campaign titled ‘Kalinga Vijay Yatra’ in the coming days.
