Bhubaneswar: BJD vice president and Minister Damodar Rout says party ready for alliance with Congress to keep ‘communal party like BJP’ at bay, but Naveen will take the final call.
On the other hand BJD MP Kalikesh Singh Deo says no need of alliance, BJD can take on BJP alone.
“Time has come to unite all the non-BJP and anti-communal political outfits to come together”, Rout said.
We have an ideological difference with the saffron party. Congress is a secular party. We will welcome if the Congress joins us, he added.
Rout also asked the Congress to submit a list of Assembly constituencies where they are confident enough to win the general polls in 2019.
