Biju Yuva Janata Dal (BYJD), the regional party of Odisha, is named after the legendary former Chief Minister and architect of modern Odisha, late Shri Biju Patnaik. It was founded on 26th December 1997 with deep-rooted belief in secularism and value-based politics, and exemplary commitment to the development of Odisha and its people. Much of the popularity and electoral success of the party is credited to Shri Naveen Patnaik’s image as an incorruptible and clean leader.
The youth of Odisha is unique in many ways. Our mild-mannered sincerity, attachment to family and village, responsibility towards Odia culture and society comes with a powerful commitment to succeed and invincible strength to protect our own.
