Bhubaneswar: BJP National President Amit Shah came down heavily on Naveen Patnaik-led BJD government in Odisha addressing a meeting of intellectuals organized by state BJP.
He termed Naveen Patnaik government as ‘defunct transformer’ and Narendra Modi as a ‘powerhouse’ in his address and dubbed BJD government as ‘non-performer’ citing that better roads, 24-hour electricity supply still remain a distant dream for people in Odisha.
And, such a non-performing government should be thrown out of power, he appealed.
The BJP leader accused the ruling party in the state corrupt and said that a person who does not know the state’s mother tongue Odia is ruling the state.
He urged the CM to get his arithmetic right if has a doubt over his ‘Mission 120’, commenting Naveen’s statement, ‘I doubt very much whether BJP will get so many seats’ Naveen had said earlier today.
“The BJP is the only party in which a poor ‘Chai Wala’ can become the Prime Minister of the country whereas one needs to be from the Gandhi family to become the Congress chief and same is the case with BJD,” Shah had said earlier in the day accusing the Congress and the BJD party of dynasty politics.
During his 3-day stay, Shah is likely to hold discussions with BJP MLAs, leaders and workers and chalk out strategies to achieve ‘Mission 120 plus.
