It seems that the BJP has launched an attack on the BJD-led Odisha government by raking up the issue of law and order alleging that the situation has gone for a toss in the state in the backdrop of the recent killing of health minister Naba Kishore Das.
Addressing a presser in Bhubaneswar, BJP Yuva Morcha President, Irashish Acharya on Friday questioned the silence of Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik.
“People in Odisha have started realizing that CM Naveen Patnaik, who also heads the Home department, is not taking action on sensitive issues and is maintaining silence. The way health minister Naba Das was killed is highly condemnable,” said Acharya.
Acharya said that the BJP has been staging demonstrations at various places in Odisha, but the CM so far has not uttered a single word on the issue.
“BJP Yuva Morcha will intensify its agitation and for the next three days will burn the effigy of CM Naveen Patnaik in each Assembly Constituency,” said Acharya while demanding CBI probe into the Naba Das murder case.
Apart from the law and order situation, the BJP Yuva Morcha also targeted the state government alleging misbehaviour with the Leader of Opposition (LoP) Jayanarayan Mishra by a lady police officer.
“Recently, Odisha Minister of State (Home), Tusharkanti Behera had made some explosive statements by claiming that police is taking bribe. However, the entire Odisha Police department was silent and remained a mute spectator,” Acharya added.
No comments have been received from the BJD on the allegations leveled by the BJP Yuva Morcha President.
