Jual Oram! A senior leader, cabinet minister of PM Narendra Modi has given a shocking yet doubtful statement before the national executive meeting of BJP.
In a recent media byte, Miniser Jual Oram has said that the party has now 7 Chief Minister candidates & the central leadership will take a final call! YES! It is 7! But as like everyone we’re completely unsure about who’re the candidates to face CM Naveen Patnaik in 2019 election as Odisha has long been the strongholds of BJD.
Where the state BJP is trying to forward another cabinet minister Dharmendra Pradhan as the party’s face but this new statement by Jual Oram and that too just a day before the visit of Narendra Modi is definitely going to make it more tougher for the leadership to take a call on the CM candidate.
Basant Ku. Panda, KV Singh Deo, Suresh Pujari, Debendra Pradhan, Dharmendra Pradhan, Jual Oram himself are among the party leadership now. It’s been speculated that the CM face of Odisha BJP will be decided in this 2 days national executive meeting of BJP, but as the number is 7, everyone is wondering if Jual has tried to bring in and project Rourkela MLA Dilip Ray as the new CM candidate competitor.
This is going to be a lot more interesting in upcoming days as Dilip Ray continues to boycott all the big party meetings!
