Rout Blames Centre

 BJD Veteran and Agriculture & Fisheries & Animal Resource Development Minister Damodar Rout today lambasted the Union Government and Saffron leaders for terming BJD Government as ‘inefficient.’

 
Dr.Rout also demanded an explanation from Central Ministers for accusing the State Government of ‘failures on all fronts.’
 
“The Prime Minister has trampled up on the democratic principles and attempting to destroy the federal fabric of the country. He has forgotten all rules and principles,” Dr.Rout said.
 
He said Biju Patnaik strove hard to develop Odisha through its own resources after successive governments ignored the State and did little for its development.
 
The BJD has no intention of winning states unlike the BJP which is trying to ‘annex’ all the 30 states in the country, the Biju Acolyte added.
 
Dr.Rout reeled out data about literacy rate, infant mortality rate, maternal mortality rate, institutional delivery, GDP growth and growth of service delivery in state while demanding reply from BJP leaders on these issues in other states ruled by the party.

Interestingly, the Centre bashing by Dr.Rout comes barely within 24 hours of Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik accusing the national parties – mainly Congress and BJP though not naming these – for constantly ignoring State’s interest since indepence.
 
BJD President had on two occasions -- during the Jansampark Pada Jatra program --of his party bashed the parties that ruled the country at Centre since independence.
 
However, the BJP termed the allegations of Dr.Rout as “Signs of frustration”.

“The Chief Minister is shaken after exposes on several fronts. He has entrusted the responsibility to Dama babu to counter the various allegations brought by the opposition from time to time,” Saffron Spokesperson Sajjan Sharma alleged.
