Jharsuguda: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today launched a scathing attack on Naveen Patnaik Government in Odisha accusing it of scam-ridden and being the roadblock for development in the State.
Addressing rally at Amlipali in Jharsuguda after inaugurating the Veer Surendra Sai Airport, Modi said corruption and delay in decision and policy-making have become the identity of the Odisha Government which is creating a barrier for development.
“Healthcare, infant and maternal mortality, malnutrition haunts people of Odisha. The State Government here fails to act. We from the Centre have to wake up the State Government to act,” said Modi
“It’s time for a major change in Odisha. The change will help in fulfilling the aspirations of the people of the State,” added Modi.
During his one-day visit to the State, the Prime Minister laid foundation stone for the commencement of work for the revival of Talcher Fertilizer Plant in Angul, inaugurated the 53.1 km long Jharsuguda-Serdega railway line constructed by the MCL and dedicated the Veer Surendra Sai airport in Jharsuguda.
