SAMBALPUR: Nuapada BJP MLA Basanta Panda on Wednesday termed the BJD-led State Government as ‘Dhritarashtra Government’ and said the State is bound to be doomed under Naveen Patnaik’s leadership.
Speaking to mediapersons on Wednesday, he said the number of cases related to atrocities on girls in TRW areas has crossed the 200 figure and the State Government refuses to act.
“The BJD Government is a curse for the people of Western Odisha and the latest UNDP report claims that situation in Koraput and Kalahandi is no better than Ethiopia,” said the BJP leader, adding that the law and order situation was at its lowest.
Speaking on the occasion, the party’s National Executive member Suresh Pujari said the last one year has been the worst in the 15-year rule of the BJD. “It is unfortunate that the BJP had partnered with the BJD for nine long years,” he said.
The leaders informed that the BJP members will reach out to people at the grassroots and apprise them about failure of the State Government.
They said though the State Government had claimed to provide one lakh jobs every year, only 750 persons have got jobs till now and that too in unorganised sector despite the fact that the Government spent `135 crore on ‘Nijukti Mela’.
