With startling revelations to allegations, the chargesheet of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) against the ruling Biju Janata Dal (BJD) created ripples ahead of the 2024 elections in Odisha.

From targeting the BJD-led Odisha government by highlighting its failures in the past 25 years, the BJP also made a startling revelation that the state consumers are being charged more than the rate at which the state government is providing electricity to Tamil Nadu. The 60-page chargesheet of the BJP was released by Union Minister Bhupender Yadav at a special function held in Bhubaneswar.

Odisha BJP president Manmohan Samal, party’s National Vice-President Baijayant Panda and other senior leaders of the party were present on the occasion.
