Dharmendra Pradhan, Union Minister and senior BJP leader, slammed the Odisha Government said that the BJD Government failed to fulfill the promises made during the earlier bypolls in the state. During Bijepur and Patkura polls, all the Odisha Government’s declared projects were not fulfilled, claimed by Pradhan.
For Tirtol polls, there was a virtual rally organized. While referring to the 119 crore bridges over Mahanadi, he said people believed that the promises made by the state government to make all those projects were not accomplished and were made in vain. The announcement of the Mahanadi Bridge was made in a hurried manner keeping the upcoming polls, Pardhan claimed further.
By seeking votes for Rajkishore Behera, a party candidate, he urged people to uphold the hands of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
He further said that the disinclination of the government to execute Ayushman Bharat Yojana in Odisha had cost the people, mostly the migrants. “The Centre has been pushing the state government but in vain. Had these migrants been covered under this central scheme, they would have received Rs 5 lakh”. He further said by attacking the state government that misgovernance and unconcerned have cost a lot to the people of Odisha. “Even during the COVID-19 period, the Odisha government tricked the people. Funds from the center are being robbed and used for filling one’s pocket”.
He further talks about the rise in unemployment in Odisha because of the inadequacy of the state government. And because of this, the people are incurring a lot of losses and are jobless. This leads to migrants from state to state in search of work. He even said that voting for Congress means assuring the victory of the BJD, and because of that, many members joined the BJP party.
On 3rd November, the Bypolls to Tirtol and Balasore are programmed.
