Bhubaneswar: Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan today dared Biju Janata Dal (BJD) president and Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik to present the report card of his 19 year rule and the plans for next five years.
Addressing a press conference at the State party office, Pradhan criticised the ruling BJD for taking the shelter of violence during election, particularly in Kendrapara.
“The ruling-BJD is resorting to goondaism and creating an atmosphere of terror in Kendrapara. But people are fed up with this Government. Naveen Babu has betrayed people of Odisha for the last 19 years. People will give them a befitting reply,” said Pradhan.
Maintaining that Naveen Patnaik is getting irritated on hearing two words – PM Modi and ‘Parivartan’- Pradhan said, “Election is the appropriate time to put your report card before people. But, Naveen Babu has no report card to present before the public.”
Pradhan asserted that change will certainly occur this time in Odisha.
