Naveen Tips For MPs

BJD Lawmakers will raise the River Mahanadi Tribunal, Polavaram Project and other issues related to Odisha's interest during the second phase of the Parliament's Budget Session beginning on 5 March.

 
The BJD MPs will ask the NDA Government at the Centre for deployment of more Central Armed Police Forces for tackling the Maoist Menace in Odisha.
 
A decision in this regard was taken at BJD parliamentary party's meeting presided over by the party President and Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik.
 
The MPs of both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha attended the meeting held at Naveen Niwas, the residence of Odisha Chief Minister.
 
It is a regular procedure in BJD as the President meets the MPs before the Session of both the Houses meets.
         
“We will demand to expedite the process of setting up of Mahanadi Tribunal to resolve the Mahanadi River water dispute with Chhattisgarh in the second phase of the budget session of Parliament,” said BJD Parliamentary  party spokesman and Lok Sabha MP Kalikesh Narayan Singh Deo after the meeting.
 
This apart, the BJD MPs will also put pressure on the Centre to stop construction of Polavaram project, he said.
 
BJD MP from Berhampur, Siddhant Mohapatra said the Lawmakers will also raise the party's demand to raise the minimum support price (MSP) of paddy to Rs 2930 per quintal against the existing price of Rs 1550 per quintal.
 
Recently State Government rejected the FAQ Norm Relaxation by the Centre due to cut in rates of rice poor in quality.
 
The meeting also decided that BJD MPs will raise Odisha's demand to bring the state under one Railway Zone as well as to expedite various railway projects in the state.
 
The BJD would also raise Odisha's long-standing demand to accord special category status (SPS) to the state, he said.
 
Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik recently raised the issue with Vice Chairman of NITI Aayog for SPS Status for the State, which it is demanding since 1978.
 
Mr.Singh Deo said the assistance of other states will be sought but BJD will keep maintaining equidistance from the UPA and the NDA.
