The Bharatiya Janata Party (BLP) aims at building a ‘BJD-Mukt’ Odisha, said the party's state general secretary Lekhashree Samantsinghar on the sidelines of the State executive meeting which began in Bhubaneswar on Saturday.

Launching a scathing attack on the conch party, the saffron party leader said, BJP will reach 1 crore families in Odisha and make them aware of various centrally-sponsored welfare schemes and the failure of the BJD government. 

"Centre implements pucca house, drinking water, employment generation and other schemes. However, the schemes could not reach people in Odisha. The State is heading to be number one in exploitation of women," Samantsinghar alleged.

“As discussed in the State Executive meeting, the BJP will try to make Odisha ‘BJD-Mukt’,” the saffron party leader said.

Samantsinghar stated that the deteriorating law and order situation, Naba Das murder case, power outage during President Droupadi Murmu’s Odisha visit, Mahanadi water sharing dispute, family dispute of Ananga Udaya Singh Deo and Sashi Bhusan Behera have put the Odisha government in the back foot.

During the state executive meeting, the BJP has reportedly prepared a blueprint to counter the BJD government on issues like delay in rituals at Srimandir, ‘missing’ of Srimandir files, irregularities in the name of 5T transformation, dilapidating healthcare facilities and Kotia border dispute.

Notably, the BJP’s State Executive meeting began under the chairmanship of the party's state president Manmohan Samal in Bhubaneswar today and discussions on various political and social issues were held in the presence of party's state-in-charge and Union Ministers Dharmendra Pradhan and Bishweswar Tudu. 

Commenting on the development, senior BJD leader and Revenue Minister Pramila Mallik said, “The common men are suffering due to skyrocketing prices of essential commodities. They should go to the common people and ask whom they want to get rid of.”
