Duo Target BJP

While BJP President Amit Shah claimed that his party will sweep the 2019 elections in Odisha, opposition Congress said the saffron party’s dream will never materialize.

This is because the people are now aware of the NDA Government's "failure in all spheres" and do not believe in "gimmicks", OPCC President Niranjan Patnaik said.

The Congress' remarks came a day after BJP President Amit Shah's visit to the state.

"BJP is eyeing Odisha to rule. Prime minister, party president Amit Shah, several central ministers are visiting Odisha. But they are dreaming. They are not going to get anything out of this," Mr.Patnaik said in a statement.

"The people of Odisha already know the truth. Voters will give their verdict in due course of time," Mr.Patnaik said.

Leader of Opposition Narasingha Mishra also targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi and accused him of not keeping promises made to the people of Odisha.
Mr.Modi during a public meeting at Rourkela on April 1, 2015 had promised to upgrade the Ispat General Hospital (IGH) in Rourkela into a super-specialty hospital and medical college.
Mr.Mishra also blamed Mr.Modi for not giving time to Muktikant Biswal, who has walked all the way from Rourkela to New Delhi to remind the Prime Minister about his promise to upgrade the IGH into a super-specialty hospital.
OPCC Chief Mr.Patnaik said that the NDA Government had promised power supply to every village but only a week back, an official in Union Power Ministry said that Government is only responsible for infrastructure and cannot guarantee uninterrupted power supply.
The PCC Chief said the BJP Government in Chhattisgarh constructed unauthorized barrage over river Mahanadi which affected Odisha.
He also lashed out at the Centre for not announcing the minimum support price (MSP) for kharif crops so far.
Mr.Patnaik also alleged that BJP grabbed power in many states where it lacked majority with money power.
