The BJP today alleged that a Bengal-owned indoor stadium, where party president Amit Shah was scheduled to attend a programme next week, had cancelled the booking for the event.

"The demonetisation has not had any negative impact (on economic growth). The leaders are chosen on the basis of merit and not their family", Shah said, adding the BJP was the only party which had its ideologies and policies rooted in the cultural heritage of India.

Shah is on a three-day visit to Odisha to galvanise the party workers for the 2019 assembly polls.

He said it was yet to be decided on who would lead the state BJP in the next assembly elections.

"The Modi government has made arrangements for the upliftment of poor dalits and backward classes".
