Jignesh Mevani alleges BJP-BJD nexus over Rafale

Bhubaneswar: Gujarat Vadgam MLA Jignesh Mevani launched a scathing attack on the BJP-led Central government and the BJD-led Odisha government alleging that there is a secret nexus between both the parties.

Targeting the ruling-BJD during a public meeting at Swadhinata Sangrami Ground in Bhubaneswar on Tuesday, Jignesh alleged that the Odisha government failed to provide justice to the Kunduli gang rape victim who allegedly committed suicide later.

The state government even failed to provide justice to the people duped by chit fund companies, Jignesh said.

Jignesh further accused that there is a secret nexus between the Centre and the ruling BJD in Odisha as the latter is not questioning and has remained silent on the Rafale Deal.

However, the BJP and BJD are yet to respond on the allegations.

Meanwhile, Odisha Congress chief Niranjan Patnaik who was also present at the meeting took to Twitter and said, “I thank leaders from all political parties who joined the event. The Congress party always has and always will fight for social justice and equality.”
