Gamang for LS

April 02 2017

After the massive win in Uttar Pradesh, BJP president Amit Shah is now gearing up to sweep other states like Odisha. A recent public survey by the party shows that BJP is in a great spot in the eastern state. In fact, it is no longer a triangular contest in the coastal state between BJP, Janata Dal (Biju) and Congress, the latter having been swept away to the Bay of Bengal. It is now a direct trial at the hustings between BJP and JDB. The Shah-Modi duo wanted Dharmendra Pradhan to become the party’s face in Odisha. They also felt that Pradhan should remain a minister at the centre and yet, get into Odisha politics more intensively. But they soon realised that presently, Pradhan is a long way behind incumbent CM Naveen Patnaik in the popularity graph. Then the crafty Shah put his bets on Giridhar Gamang. Gamang recently met Shah and it has now been decided that he will be made a Rajya Sabha MP from UP and later, he will be made the party’s torchbearer in Odisha.
