National BJP president Rajnath Singh will visit the cyclone and flood- affected districts of the State on November 1.
Announcing this at a media conference here on Tuesday, senior leader and former minister Manmohan Samal said Rajnath will make an aerial survey of affected areas and meet people of Ganjam and Balasore districts.
Slamming the State Government for its failure to reach the affected even after two weeks of the natural calamities, Samal said a large number of marooned people of Balasore, Bhadrak, Mayurbhanj and Jajpur districts are deprived of food and water. The Government has no stock of food materials in the affected areas, he alleged.
The BJP will reach out to the people of all the affected blocks on November 4 and 5 and hold demonstrations before the block offices demanding adequate relief and rehabilitation.
Tikri Burn Incident
Condemning the incident at Tikri in Rayagada district, where a lady school teacher was set afire after she refused to withdraw the case filed by her against the Inspector of Schools of that area, State BJP Mahila Morcha president Simantini Jena said the 36-year-old teacher had approached the District Inspector of Schools, the District Collector and even the Minister of State for School and Mass Education to take action against the School Inspector, but to no avail.
The lady teacher’s request for transfer was also ignored. Jena demanded an impartial probe into the incident and stern action against the accused.
