Bhubaneswar: As Odisha’s ruling party BJD has launched ‘Ghare Ghare Sankha’ campaign to collect opinions from every household from across the State in a bid to draft its party manifesto for the ensuing general elections, the party is on its move and made it clear today that the manifesto will be ready and announced before the stipulated 48 hours of poll date as prescribed by the Election Commission of India.

Talking to media, BJD IT Wing head and party spokesperson Amar Patnaik informed, “60-70% of the public opinions under our Ghare Ghare Sankha campaign have already reached here. Opinions from each household are being consolidated. This exercise is consuming time. But it is a unique experiment. Neither any national party nor any regional party has yet collected opinion from every household and drafted manifesto.”

“Election Commission’s stipulation is that manifesto should be declared 48 hours before poll date. We will be doing that within the deadline,” he asserted.

He also stated, “10-15 schemes of the State Government have been liked by the people and they have opined to continue those popular schemes. Also opinions have come to increase the quantity of road connectivity, increasing pucca ghar, etc. The most significant opinion is to further intensify State Government’s fight on behalf of the people against Centre’s neglect.”

Senior BJD MLA Arun Sahoo said, “Many members of our party are studying the opinions collected from Ghare Ghare Sankha campaign. Those opinions are also being put forth before our Manifesto Committee. Laying stress on the public opinions, a good manifesto is being prepared.”

“Priority is being given to the farmers, all round development of the women, special programme for the youths, for the students also. Hence, earnestly request to have patience till our party manifesto is published,” he appealed.
