By Poll Heros Rewarded

Keeping in view the next general election, which is left barely some months, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik Today effected changes in the portfolios of five Ministers.

Mr.Patnaik relinquished, most important, Water Resources and Works Portfolios held by him since more than one and half decade.

Housing and Urban Development Minister Niranjan Pujari was given Water Resources, while Prafulla Mallick was given additional charge of Department of Works.
These two departments look after Irrigation and infrastructure projects across the State and rated as heavy portfolios.

Since the Governing BJD Members had to face question from people on irrigation and infrastructure development issues, sources said Naveen decided to appoint two full time Ministers to meet the aspiration of the people in the ensuing general elections.
Apart from Irrigation and infrastructure, people have also asked questions on drinking water and power issues.
Therefore, keeping these issues on mind Mr.Patnaik gave additional charge of Energy to Minister Labor and ESI, Susant Singh.
Elevation of Mr.Singh is seen as a reward to the Bhatli Lawmaker for his organizational skill in the recently concluded Bijepur By Poll.

Similarly, Prafulla Mallick, who is also Governing BJD Observer for Bargarh District has been rewarded.
Mr.Mallick now will be holding two important departments, Steel & Mines and Works in the Naveen Patnaik Ministry.
Similarly, during intensive campaign in the nook and corner of Bijepur Assembly segment, the Governing party could realize that its People Oriented Plan and Programs are not reaching the grass root..

Therefore, Naveen picked up a young leader and Minister Health & Family Welfare Pratap Jena to take the responsibility of Information and Public Relations.

Mr. Jena worked seriously in Bijepur and organized Health Care System efficiently in far flung zones of Gaisilat, which yielded results for BJD Candidate.

Department of Industries, which was so far with Mr.Pujari has been assigned to Anant Das, the Minister, Higher Education.

Therefore the entire exercise is seen as a move to reward the By Poll Heros and to meet the aspiration of the people in an effective way.

And Chief Minister Mr.Patnaik will now get more time to chalk out Plans and Programs for the people and for his Political Outfit to face 2019 General elections effectively.
