Parties On Jatra Mode

Much ahead of the general elections and polling for the Odisha Legislative Assembly, state’s three major political parties- the BJD, BJP and Congress has now picked up “Yatra” to garner support from the people.

After BJD’s ‘Jan Sampark Yatra’ launched on Gandhi Jayanti Day on October 2, the Congress has already started its ‘Jan Jagran Yatra’.
Now, BJP today announced its plan to launch ‘Parivartan and Lok Sampark Padayatra’ to create awareness and get public support.
Though the ruling party used to hold padayatra for 15 days from Gandhi Jayanti till Jay Prakash Narayan birth anniversary every year, this time, the regional party extended the yatra for a month.
When the two major parties are already on Yatra, how can the BJP sit idle. The saffron party on its state executive meeting yesterday decided to launch an intensive campaign against Odisha Government’s corruption.
Odisha BJP President, Basant Panda said that a ‘Halla Bol’ campaign will be launched from October 27 to expose and highlight corruption in the State.

Mr.Panda said the BJP has planned for a month-long ‘Lok Sampark Padayatra’ to be undertaken at the village-level from November 1 to 30 and ‘Parivartan Yatra’ from December 1 to 30.

While the BJD during its yatra create awareness on the welfare schemes launched by the state government and expose failure of the NDA government, BJP will highlight the benefits of Ayushman Bharat scheme and other welfare programmes of Modi Government.
“BJP is now in a state of panic as the popularity of Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik is growing each day. They (BJP) are now just copying our padayatra which BJD has been conducting for the last 10 years. Such attempts of BJP will not yield any results,” said BJD Spokesperson, Sasmit Patra.
Congress ‘Jan Jagran Yatra’ on the other hand has been highlighting the failures of Odisha Government and BJP-led NDA Government at the Centre.
“We are telling people how Modi has provided Achha din. The petrol, disel and cooking gas has been skyrocketing. The party also highlight raffle issue,” said OPCC President Niranjan Patnaik.
