Executive Meet: BJP pledges clean & efficient administration in Odisha
Bhubaneswar: The Odisha unit of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has resolved to ensure overall development of the state through clean and transparent administration after throwing the ‘insensitive and corrupt’ BJD in next Assembly elections.
The resolution was passed by BJP on the second day of its two-day state executive meeting in Bhubaneswar on Sunday. In its political resolution, the party stated that though Odisha is endowed with rich natural resources, it has remained backward due to anti-people policy and corrupt practices by the ruling BJD which has remained in power for 23 years.
The main opposition party in the state said the peace-loving people of Odisha have been subjected to lawlessness as the ministers and leaders of the ruling party are directly or indirectly involved in heninous crimes and patronise the criminals. The police, which are responsible to ensure protection of the life and people, are acting to the tune of the BJD leaders.
“According to an observation of the Supreme Court, Odisha remains at the top among the states in reporting cases of the rape, kidnap of minor girls and torture of women. As many as 9 cases of rape and 8 murders are reported in the state everyday. The state has emerged as a major centre of smuggling of narcotics like ganja, brown sugar cocaine and heroin though chief minister himself holds the home portfolio,” said the BJP.
