Odisha Follows Delhi Model

While this time Odisha is contemplating to follow the national model for Independence Day Celebration, Saffron Brigade has raised objections.

 
The format for Republic Day is ‘Parade’ based and Independence Day is ‘Speech’ based in the National Capital.

“In the Republic Day the President of India takes the salute from the armed forces parade and the Prime Minister delivers the speech from the Red Fort on Independence Day,” said BJD MP.

Therefore from this year, Odisha will be following the National Model of having ‘Speech’ based format by the Chief Minister as it is done in New Delhi by the Prime Minister,”  said BJD Rajya Sabha MP Sasmit Patra on 10 August.
 
He said in a democracy it is always expected that the states follow the National model especially in the celebrations of Independence Day and Republic Day.

Mr.Patra criticized BJP leader Prithviraj Harichandan saying that the saffron party leader was indulging in petty politics on a sensitive matter like Independence Day celebration which was ‘Unfortunate.’

“The BJP and its leader Prithviraj Harichandan’s politics on such sensitive matters such as the Independence Day celebrations is highly unfortunate. Instead of playing politics, BJP and Harichandan should support Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik’s call to incorporate the ‘AHIMSA’ concept of Mahatma Gandhi in the Preamble of the Indian Constitution,” Mr.Patra said at a press conference.

He said a campaign has been launched by the BJD to collect nearly one lakh signatures to  include “Ahimsa” in the Preamble.

He said, this year marks the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi and in order to commemorate his role in the freedom struggle and also the role of Odisha in the freedom struggle of India for independence, the Government is planning an exhibitions on a bigger scale at the Exhibition Ground in the capital city.

“Therefore, it is fitting that the Independence Day celebrations as well as the 150th Birth Anniversary celebrations of Mahatma Gandhi, his role and Odisha’s role in the freedom struggle are commemorated at the same venue,” Mr.Patra asserted.
