Prime Minister’s “Expiry Date” Remark is Retaliated as “Daydream” by Naveen Patnaik

Bhubaneswar, 6 May: In the scenario of the Lok Sabha election campaign, the BJD and BJP face-off took an ugly turn with Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying that June 4 is the expiry date of the BJD government in Odisha. The assembly election is going to be conducted simultaneously in Odisha and the result of the election will be declared on June 4. The prime minister has given a remark at a political rally in Berhampur, Odisha,  as June 4 is fixed as the expiry date of the Naveen government.

The reaction of the BJD supremo and the chief minister of Odisha Naveen Patnaik is instant saying that BJP and its leaders are daydreaming of coming to power in the state.

The prime minister, in his previous rally, had requested the people of Odisha to trust BJP in making the state the number one state. He took a jibe at the chief minister of the state by criticising him for not speaking the language of the land. He remarks the state should have a CM who knows the Odia language and understands the culture.

Modi, in his speech, claims Odisha is not able to get benefits from the Ayushman Bharat Yojana as the state government has been ready to implement it in the state. Moreover, the centre allocates 10, 000 crore under the Jal Jeevan Mission but unfortunately, the state dispensation is unable to utilise it fruitfully.

Odisha as a state and the people here remain poor even though the state is abundantly rich in land, fertility, mineral resources and sea coasts for having developed a flourished economy in the state. The resources are not used in the direction to benefit the people and boost the state’s economy. So the prime minister states that the BJP is releasing a visionary manifesto to push the economy of the state to number one, employ the youth, health facilities for women, children and the elderly.

Modi promises to put the Ayushman Bharat Yojana – Jan Arogya Yojana on the day of the swearing ceremony of BJP’s chief minister in Odisha on the 10th of June. He affirmed the win of the BJP and strongly pledged the people to give the party a chance to serve the state. BJP fulfils everything it promises, claims the prime minister.

The rampant poverty and backwardness are factored by the continuous loot of Congress and BJD in Odisha.
