Bhubaneswar: Biju Janata Dal (BJD) president and Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik today strongly attacked the BJP-led Centre and reiterated that no national parties will get majority at the centre and regional parties will be kingmakers.
“No national parties will get majority while regional parties will be kingmakers,” reiterated Patnaik while addressing an election rally in Kuchinda in Sambalpur district.
Patnaik also came down heavily on the BJP for conspiring to stop the KALIA scheme.
“Nearly 40 lakh farmers have been benefited under the KALIA scheme. But nobody stop it till my last breath. The 4.50 crore population is my family,” said Patnaik.
Besides Sambalpur, Patnaik will hit the campaign trail in Sambalpur, Khurda, Cuttack, Kendrapara and Puri where election will be held on April 23 and 29.
