During his visit to Bhubaneswar, BJP president Amit Shah got rousing welcome by partymen. He was offered two lotus garlands - one with 21 flowers apparently representing the Lok Sabha seats in the state and another with 147 blooms marking the assembly seats.

Shah arrived to attend the BJP national executive beginning on Saturday and was offered the larger lotus garland by state party president Basant Panda and the other by union minister Dharmendra Pradhan.

Asked, party insiders said that the garlands represented the number of Lok Sabha (21) seats and assembly seats (147) in Odisha.

“The state leadership in a manner requested Shah to help it in winning all the 21 Lok Sabha and 147 assembly seats in the state,” said a senior leader.

Incidently, the BJP has only one Lok Sabha seat out the total 21 in the state and 10 out of the 147 assembly seats.
