Bhubaneswar: Chief Minister and BJD president Naveen Patnaik on Tuesday slammed the BJP saying it had promised to accord special category state status for Odisha in its poll manifesto but people of the State still wait for fulfillment of the promise.
The CM said this after inaugurating party’s month-long Jan Sampark Padayatar at Jharana Basti near Sishu Bhavan Square here in ward number 53. The Jan Sampark drive will conclude on November 2.
“We have delivered what we had promised to the people in our manifesto during the 2014 Assembly polls,” said Patnaik.
During the padayatra programme, the party will highlight the successes of the Government.
BJD organizes the padayatra every year from October 2 (Gandhi Jayanti).
