“The party president will review the party affairs in the state ahead of the 2019 elections,” informed state BJP general secretary Prithviraj Harichandan on Monday.
During his visit, Shah will attend a programme in Bhubaneswar and meet senior party leaders to chalk out strategies for strengthening the party’s base in grassroots level of the state, Harichandan added.
