BJP Odisha unit president Manmohan Samal on Friday said there will be no alliance with any political party, including the Biju Janata Dal (BJD), for the upcoming Lok Sabha and Assembly elections.

After returning from the national capital, where he attended the party’s election management committee meeting, Samal told reporters that the BJP will field its candidates in all 21 Lok Sabha seats and 147 constituencies in Odisha.

β€œIt’s a rumor spread by an unknown force. We have no plans for an alliance with the BJD,” Samal said.
