Ramkripal Yadav lambasts BJD

Bhubaneswar: After targeting ruling BJD government for not providing him with adequate security cover during campaign for the ensuing panchayat poll, Union Minister of State for Rural Development RamKripal Yadav on Friday targeted the Odisha government for failing to implement various centrally sponsored schemes in the state.

Talking to newsmen in a press conference at Odisha BJP’s headquarters here, the Union minister lambasted the BJD government and asked how many houses has been constructed under Indira Awas Yojana scheme and Biju Awas Yojna.

“Either, the contractors are workers of BJD who are working as agents of the state government or there is nexus between them. The matter should be brought under the purview of investigation,” Kripal added.
