Bhubaneswar: Odisha Chief Minister-cum-BJD supremo Naveen Patnaik during a review of the ongoing membership drive of the party on Friday asked the grassroots leaders to expedite the process.

While deliberations were held between presidents and observers of 30 districts along with seven members of the State-level committee, Patnaik personally reviewed the status of the membership drive in six districts.

Like every year, the BJD's Jana Sampark Padayatra will be held from October 2, the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, and continue till October 11, the birth anniversary of Jayaprakash Narayan.

However, in view of the heavy rain and upcoming Dussehra, the district presidents and observers have requested the supremo to extend the date, informed BJD spokesperson Pratap Deb.
