Give PM Modi one chance, we will turn Odisha to number one State
Bhubaneswar: BJP chief Amit Shah today lambasted the BJD and the Congress for neglecting Odisha and promised that his party will transform the State into the number one in the country if given the chance.
Shah said Odisha is rich with natural resources and full of youth but the State has not seen development, because it is being ruled by a government which cannot even safeguard the Ratna Bhandar of Lord Jagannath.
Odisha is still at the same place where it was19 years ago, so it is time to dislodge the government from the perch and give a chance to Modiji
Questioning the Naveen-led government on non-implementation of central projects like Ayushman Bharat, Shah said Modi government has released Rs 5.13 lakh crore to Odisha but the amount has not reached the people of the State because the BJD government fears the poupularity of PM Modi.
Tearing into the Congress, Shah said ‘Rahul baba’s (AICC president Rahul Gandhi) forefathers ruled the country for 55 years but LPG connections could not reach the people. But as soon as Modiji became the PM, our countrymen were ensured gas connections.
However, the BJD and Congress retaliated on the comments made by Shah.
OPCC chief Niranjan Patnaik said, the saffron party leader was trying to save the face of his party after PM Modi went silent on CM Naveen durong his last three visits to Odisha.
BJD leader Sashi Bhusan Behera said however hard Shah may try to inslore his party and play against the BJD it will have no effect on the ruling party.
