Apart from PM Modi, 40 Union ministers, 13 chief ministers and seven deputy chief ministers will be attending the 2-day meet.

Sunday's resolution at the national executive of BJP also reaffirmed Modi's commitment towards building a "society of equal opportunities" where nobody would be treated as "inferior".

He promised to work hard himself and announced that by September, he would have spent 95 days travelling in the country's different regions, particularly in areas where the BJP is weak, to interact with booth-level party workers.

Earlier, making an intervention during the discussion over the resolution passed on a new OBC commission, the Prime Minister said that even Muslim communities have backwards and marginalised and it was the duty of the government address their concerns.

"I feel elated to see our Prime Minister from close quarters".

The two-day party conclave - which had started with Prime Minister's high-optics roadshow - ended with a strong message from him: "There is no room for complacency after victory".

He sought party workers and leaders not to be complacent after poll victories and rather set their eyes on taking "a long jump" in history and "march with speed" to "change history".

Speaking on phone while he was finding it tough to keep pace with PM's auto route, he said: 'I have not seen such a response in Bhubaneswar for any BJP leader.I have been in politics for over 35 years now.

Putting Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik's fortress under threat, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) after aiming for "Congress Mukt Bharat" seems to be targeting regional players. Already giant cut outs of the prime minister have come up in the city.

"Modi failed to make his stand clear on the Mahanadi issue, which happens to be the lifeline of Odisha", Harichandan said.

Talking about the all round development of the country in terms of economy and social equality, the Prime Minister emphasized on envisaging an India sans discrimination of any kind.

President Prasad Harichandan today said the BJP's call for an opposition free India at the National Executive meeting here reflected the arrogance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and posed a threat to the democracy.

Further to this, BJP leader Shrikant Sharma asserted that the party has always been against the concept of triple talaq primarily because it is related to a woman's dignity and safety.

It will focus on expanding the party in politically important states like West Bengal and Odisha, which are key to Shah's 2019 Lok Sabha poll strategy.

Social justice is the new mantra of the BJP, which helped it win Uttar Pradesh with a two-thirds majority.

The BJP also has to face assembly elections in Gujarat, Himachal, Karnataka and Odisha.
