Kendrapara: BJP national vice president and Lok Sabha candidate for Kendrapara, Baijayant 'Jay' Panda along with party's Patkura Assembly candidate Bijoy Mohapatra today trained guns on the ruling-BJD at a public meeting in Kendrapara.
While addressing a mega public meeting at Chhatahat in Derabisi block of Kendrapara district today, Panda said, "BJD has moved away from the ideologies on which the party was formed. The party which was formed with assistance of BJP has tarnished the name of Biju Babu."
Panda further alleged that BJD has set up ‘Goonda Vahini’ (Yuva Vahini) by misutilising government money.
“Odisha is top in terms of crime and violence against women & children, farmers are beaten up for raising voice, people forced to migrate to other places in search of employment. It's high time, Odisha needs 'Parivartan,” said Panda.
Centre is providing hundreds of crores assistance to #Odisha but due to the State govt's apathy, the money goes back unutilised; even then the BJD govt is not ashamed of alleging Central 'neglect': Jay Panda during public meeting in #Kendrapara #OdishaPollsWithOTV pic.twitter.com/kb7TDt3ehR

The senior BJP leader also targeted Odisha government for not implementing PM-KISAN Yojana despite farmers in the state are facing hardship.
Earlier Panda arrived in Kendrapara to a rousing reception and was taken in a grand procession to the meeting venue. He was accompanied by Ollywood heartthrob Babusan.
BJP’s candidate for Patkura Assembly seat, Bijoy Mohapatra, who was present at the meeting, also came down heavily on the ruling-BJD for failing on several fronts.
“It will be a historic election. Those in power have failed miserably and people have realised this,” said Mohapatra.
