PM Modi committed for development of Odisha: Pradhan

Bhubaneswar: Ahead of Prime Minister’s scheduled Odisha visit on September 22, Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan today asserted that Narendra Modi’s focus is on development of the State.

Pradhan stated that the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre has taken a lot of welfare measures towards development of road, rail and air network in Odisha.

“PM Narendra Modi has laid stress on the development of North Eastern States including Odisha,” said Pradhan.

The Union Minister further claimed that Odisha is receiving more in terms of allocation towards development of railway networks.

What the state is now receiving in terms of central assistance was practically hard for it to get in five years under the previous regime, he added.
