Bhubaneswar, April 8: BJD President and Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has thanked the people of Odisha and expressed gratitude for their patience to combat coronavirus, BJD General Secretary Sanjaya Das Burma said on Wednesday.
Addressing his party workers Das Burma said, “At this time of crisis, as directed by party president and Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik I request the countless workers and well-wishers of Biju Janata Dal to ensure that not one person in their area stays without food.
They should consider each person without food as a member of their family, stand with them and in the process set an example for society. I on behalf of party president Naveen Patnaik request that we should accept this as our social responsibility and undertake this direction.
Our popular CM has appealed that the people at this time of disaster, should follow the guidelines provided by the Department of Health. And if they venture out from their home for some very important activity, they should wear masks without fail. I request the countless workers and well-wishers of Biju Janata Dal to accept this appeal of the CM and turn this into a social movement.
As directed by the CM I request all elected representatives (MPs, MLAs), all representatives of Urban Local Bodies, Municipal Corporations, Block Chairmen and all elected representatives, and countless workers and well-wishers of Biju Janata Dal to combat the lack of availability of blood through “Jiban Bindu” programme and at this time of crisis carry out our social responsibility. I request the countless workers and well-wishers of Biju Janata Dal to accept this as a challenge, he appealed.
