"We will try to come to power in Odisha in 2019 (when assembly poll is due)", Naidu, who is here to attend the BJP national executive meeting, told reporters. But, our peak is yet to come, ' Shah said.

According to Prasad, Amit Shah said that opposition parties were looking for excuses for their defeat and questioning electronic voting machines was disrespectful and defaming the Election Commission.

'We have 13 chief ministers across India but we aim to have a chief minister in every state, ' he said, adding that from local bodies and state legislatures to Parliament, the BJP will have a majority every where.

The focus of the gruelling schedule of Shah is to leverage the popularity BJP thinks Modi enjoys.

"If you analyse the UP election, the BJP would have even if other parties were together", Prasad said. "Amit Shahji has asked the party workers to work harder and we will continue our work in the coming days as well", said Prasad.

"The Union Ministers, Chief Ministers and Deputy Chief Ministers coming here to attend the BJP's national executive meeting will be treated as State guests", said the Chief Minister's Office (CMO).

Continuing with the BJP's Dalit outreach, the party has named the venue of its executive meet after noted Odia poet and reformer Bhima Bhoi.

The Dalits constitute over 17 per cent of the state's electorate and have never been traditional voters of the saffron party, which is now wooing them aggressively. Mr. Shah also said Mr. Modi was the most popular leader in the country since Independence.

In a sarcastic attack, Shah said that when United Progressive Alliance won the 2004 and 2009 general elections or the Bahujan Samaj Party and Samajwadi Party won the Uttar Pradesh elections in 2007 and 2012, then there was no problem, but now all of sudden questions are being raised about EVMs.

Governor SC Jamir and Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik were not seen at the airport to welcome the prime minister as his visit was "non-official" and political in nature, said the government sources.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who arrived in the capital this afternoon, held an eight-km long road show from the airport to Raj Bhawan. "Modi, ' "Bharat Mata ki Jai" and 'Bande Mataram" rent the air.

The BJP hopes that the situation has changed in the last three years and it can ride on the Narendra Modi wave to taste success in the 2019 polls.
