Naveen Slams Centre

 It seems in coming days there will be intensive political fight will be between BJD and BJP.

As the BJD Supremo and Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik targeted Saffron Party in its major political program and he did not uttered a word against the Principal Opposition Party-Congress, political observers feel that way.
Kick starting month long Jan Sampark Pada Jatra Mr.Patnaik made scathing attack on the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre.
Chief Minister Mr.Patnaik today said the saffron party reminds him of the proverb "empty vessels make the most noise".

Mr.Patnaik said the NDA Government has not been able to live up to the expectations of people during last four years of its Rule.

He said, "In its Election Manifesto, the BJP had promised to accord Special
Category status to Odisha, but nothing has been done so far. As we know, empty vessels make the most noise."

The month-long program of the Governing Party comes days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP President Amit Shah visited the state on separate occasions, seeking ouster of BJD Government in 2019 elections.

During this period, the BJD leaders will create awareness on the State Government's achievements and flagship programs such as ‘State Food Security Scheme’, 'Ama Gaon Ama Vikash', 'Ama Sahara Ama Unnati', Biju Swasthya Kalyan Yojana, Mission Shakti scheme.

The CM, however, did not uttered a word against the Congress - the state's principal opposition party - which has 16 MLAs in the Odisha Assembly. The saffron party has 10 seats in the 147-member House.

Claiming that his government has fulfilled all promises made to the people before the 2014 elections, Patnaik said he was forced to launch a food security scheme in the state as the Centre did not include households left out of National Food Security Act (NFSA).

Mr.Patnaik also said that his Government had to launch Biju Swasthya Kalyan Yojana (BSKY) as the Centre rejected his terms and conditions for Ayushman Bharat program.

 "The people of Odisha know who fulfils promises and who does not..." the CM asserted.

 Reacting to Mr.Patnaik's allegations, the BJP General Secretary P Harichandan said Odisha could not get the 'Special Category' status due to several factors, including the government's inability to spend the central funds in its entirety.

"It is unfortunate that the Chief Minister is demanding special category status even after remaining in power for 18 years. The state government has not been able to spend the central assistance given by the NDA government," said Mr.Harichandan.
