On the last day of campaigning for the third phase of polls scheduled to be held on May 25 in Odisha, several BJP heavyweights including party chief JP Nadda, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma attended a series of public meetings in the state on Thursday.

All eyes were on Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath as it was the first time he hit the campaign trail for the party candidates in Odisha. While addressing a public meeting at Banpur under the Puri Lok Sabha segment, Yogi Adityanath attacked the Naveen Patnaik-led government in Odisha. Alleging that the CM here is surrounded by officers, Yogi Adityanath said that they are hijacking central schemes of the PM Narendra Modi-led government.

In his address, Yogi Adityanath stated that Puri holds religious significance for all and is one of the four peeths in the country. Without Puri, the Sanatan tradition of the country cannot be thought of. Give BJP strength so that it launches a crackdown on the land mafia, sand mafia, forest mafia, cattle mafia-like what has been done in Uttar Pradesh using ‘Bulldozers’, he said.

Highlighting that there has been massive development in the country under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s leadership, Yogi Adityanath said India’s borders have been secured, terrorism and naxalism have been controlled and the nation is on the right track with massive infrastructural development in highways, railways, education sector, health and other areas.

Double Engine Government Speeds Up Development; Naveen Govt Surrounded By Corrupt Officers

The pace of development is expedited whenever there is a double-engine government in the country, said Yogi Adityanath. “But in Odisha, the Naveen Patnaik government is surrounded by corrupt officers. They are hijacking the central schemes and misleading people. The Modi Govt has provided treatment facility under the Ayushman Bharat scheme. However, the Naveen government is not allowing its implementation in Odisha. In Odisha, the Ratna Bhandar keys are missing and the treasure trove is being looted,” said Yogi Adityanath.

There is a celebration in Ayodhya after the construction of the grand Ram Temple of Lord Ram. A new India is marching ahead with its tradition and development agenda and on the other hand, there is BJD which is surrounded by officers. This leads to corruption, dictatorship, and the poor suffer while land and sand mafia take over, said the Uttar Pradesh CM.

“An officer should not be given so much power that he starts governing which is not his job. The real democracy is when the governance is run by the democratically elected people’s representatives,” said Yogi Adityanath.

‘BJD, Congress TMC Doing Appeasement Politics’

In his address, Yogi Adityanath said that the Reservation benefits should be given to SC, ST and backward classes. But be it Congress, TMC, BJD or others, they are doing appeasement politics.

“At some places, they are protecting the killers of Swami Laxamanananda Saraswati while they are intruding on the rights of the backward classes at the other places. If we look at their manifesto, it appears that it is the manifesto of some Muslim league instead of a national party. Be it Congress, INDI alliance, TMC, BJD or others, they are adopting an anti-India stand and their policies are to promote terrorism, naxalism, and corruption. The wave in favour of the BJP has now become a Tsunami and the party will achieve the 400 par target,” Yogi Adityanath.

No commets could be obtained from the BJD, Congress and TMC.
