BJP National Vice-President and party’s Kendrapara Lok Sabha candidate Baijayant 'Jay' Panda on Tuesday slammed the BJD for making uncharitable remarks against his health.

Issuing a statement, the office of Baijayant Panda stated that BJD’s Tamil Puppeteer still has not fully learnt Odia, otherwise he would have realized there was not a single word mentioned about CM’s health.

“What Shri Panda said was that one non-Odia person is controlling the CM and putting out AI-generated deepfake videos instead of actual videos by CM,” the official statement issued by Panda’s office read.

Moreover, it is in fact the BJD who has made uncharitable remarks about Shri Panda’s health in their press conference and statements since yesterday, the statement mentioned.

The office of Jay Panda also suggested a simple solution to the ongoing issue.

“As told by the Prime Minister, the CM should simply come out in a public forum and name Odisha districts. This would put to rest all the concerns and speculations about the unfortunate control over the CM by non-Odia forces,” the official release read.
