"This would be the greatest of all rallies of the BJP in the state. For the first time, Modi and Amit Shah would address a rally in the state while several central leaders would attend the farmers' convention", said state BJP spokesperson Sajjan Sharma yesterday.

Union Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh, Tribal Affairs Minister Jual Oram and Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan will also join the Bargarh convention. Sharma said the leaders would interact with the farmers while highlighting the schemes initiated by the Central government for the benefit of farmers.

The party expects that the visit of Modi and Shah would give a big boost to the BJP to connect to the people in the state and gain political mileage. Bargarh town is flooded with party flags, posters, banners and hoardings of Modi, Shah, Dharmendra Pradhan and Jual Oram.
