Alliance talks: BJP delegation from Odisha rushes to Delhi

Manmohan Samal’s state BJP delegation hurried to New Delhi for another round of talks about the party’s election preparations.

Despite the saffron party’s blood, sweat, and tears in rebuilding itself following the 2009 split, the Bharatiya Janata Party will needlessly bear the weight of anti-incumbency built up from 24 years of Biju Janata Dal rule, expressed party workers worried about reported alliance negotiations.

Although there has been much progress in alliance negotiations, as far as a return appears improbable, grassroots cadres are still finding it difficult to accept this fact, according to BJP and BJD sources.

Political analysts in Odisha hypothesized that the claims of ignorance regarding alliance talks made by State BJP president Manmohan Samal and election co-in charges Vijaypal Singh Tomar and Lata Usendi could just be an attempt to quell the mounting unrest among the cadres at the grassroots level. These BJP leaders all said that plans were made to fight the election on one hand.

After being called by the national leadership on Sunday, a delegation of the State BJP led by Mr. Samal hurried to New Delhi, presumably to attend a conference to negotiate a prospective coalition and seat sharing.
