ASKA: Senior Congress leader and Odisha in-charge Jagdish Tytler on Sunday accused the Naveen Patnaik led BJD of being responsible for ‘Odisha’s plight’.

Stating that Maoist violence in the State has gone up after BJD came to power, Jagdish said today the entire State is Maoist-infested due to failure of the State Government in controlling the menace.

Speaking to mediapersons here, he added that the BJD’s allegation of Centre’s apathy towards the State is ‘baseless’. “The Centre has funded several schemes for the poor in the State but the State Government has been taking credit for them,” Tytler said. On Congress failure in the Nabarangpur by-poll, the leader alleged that government machinery was used to ensure win for the BJD candidate.
