Bolangir: Union Minister and senior BJP leader Dharmendra Pradhan today targeted Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on several issues, including drinking water and farmers problems.
Addressing a conference of Other Backward Classes (OBCs) at Kantabanji in Bolangir district Pradhan said even after 19-year rule, CM Naveen Patnaik could not address the water issue of farmers.
“People are yet to get basic civic amenities. Drinking water and farmers issues are yet to be resolved even after 19-year rule of Naveen Patnaik. But the Chief Minister is asking people “apana mane khusi ta, mu bahut khusi” wherever he goes,” said Pradhan.
The meeting was also attended by Union Minister Ram Kripal Yadav.
He also blasted the State Government for doing nothing for the development of OBCs and said the development that took place in western Odisha, including Bolangir was all executed by the BJP.
The senior BJP leader also lambasted the Chief Minister for the rampant unemployment and labour migration.
