Party sources said 2019 Odisha assembly elections are likely to take the centre stage at the meeting, where political and economic resolutions would also be adopted.

Party chief Amit Shah, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, a large number of union ministers, chief ministers of BJP-led states, party office bearers and workers from across the country have descended upon state-capital Bhubaneshwar for a two-day event.

Shah also hit out at opposition parties for questioning EVMs and said that blaming EVMs is disrespecting the Election Commission.

Shah said he will spend 95 days touring the country to meet party leaders and workers and asked senior leaders and union ministers to give 15 days to strengthen the organisation while speaking about its growth prospects in states like Kerala, Tamil Nadu, West Bengal and Odisha.

"I don't see any threat from the BJP to my party and government", said the chief minister. This only will bring BJP's "golden era". Only two of them had been won by the BJP in the last election.

Amit Shah went to talk about the BJP's current position in national politics and the party's future. Amit Shah said that we need to work toward this.

The Prime Minister will also visit the Sri Lingaraj temple to offer prayers, according to state BJP spokesperson Sajjan Sharma. "We are strengthening the party organisation in all these booths", Arun Singh, BJP general secretary and the Odisha minder, said, hoping the momentum will be generated by this weekend's meeting and Modi's presence. Bharatiya Janata Party supporters raised slogans of "Modi-Modi" and "Vande Mataram".

"We were also weak in north eastern states like Assam and Manipur". Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik explained that he would not be meeting the PM because he was visiting the state for "political work".

Clad in an all-white, Modi stood on the footrest of his Range Rover, beamed and waved at the people who had gathered on both sides of the road with lotus flowers in their hands to greet him.

The Prime Minister, who landed at the Biju Patnaik International Airport here, held the roadshow from the airport to the Raj Bhavan, where he will stay.
