BJD Govt Neck

SUNDARGARH: The Congress leaders on Sunday upped the ante against the BJD Government in the State and the BJP Government at the Centre for their all-round failures in ensuring welfare of the people.

Addressing a gathering after launching the Jana Sampark Padyatra in Sundargarh Assembly constituency, OPCC president Prasad Harichandan said the State Government, led by Naveen Patnaik, has failed miserably on all fronts. They condemned irregularities in distribution of ration cards under National Food Security Scheme and alleged that when farmers committed suicides, the BJD Government failed to extend support to them.

Harichandan was accompanied by Leader of Opposition Narasingh Mishra, OPCC vice-president in-charge of Sundargarh parliamentary constituency Narayan Das, AICC secretary Subhankar Sarkar, former chief minister Hemanand Biswal, former Assembly speaker KC Patel, OPCC general secretary Bhimsen Choudhary, Sundargarh, Talsara and Jharsuguda MLAs Yogesh Singh, Prafulla Majhi and Nabakishore Das respectively, OPCC secretary Sabir Hussain and OPCC Women Wing president Sasmita Behera. The leaders marched in a procession from Karamdihi of Subdega block to the meeting venue in Sundargarh town  covering a distance of 7 km. At the meeting, the Congress alleged that the BJD Government is neck-deep in corruption and accused it of non-performance.

They also spewed venom on Narendra Modi Government stating that though former Union minister Dilip Ray’s name cropped up in coal scam, the MLA from Rourkela continues to enjoy a strong clout in the BJP. They also flayed the Modi Government’s efforts to saffronise the country.
