Bhubaneswar:8/9/17: BJP president Amit Shah today imbibed ‘work-hard’ and ‘Oust-Naveen’ mantra to 35,000 booth level party cadres while appealing the workers to go all out to oust the corrupt and inefficient government in the state.
Playing to the gallery while addressing cadres from 36 organizational districts, Shah said “Naveen-led government is like a defunct transformer. Do not just replace the transformer, but throw it out”.
As part of its ‘Look East’ policy of wresting power in the eastern states of West Bengal and Odisha, the BJP chief Shah is paying visit to the state for fourth time this year. With BJP emerging as a resurgent political force in Odisha, central leadership is apparently laying additional focus in the state in the face of signs of downslide of Naveen Magic. The elevation of Dharmandra Pradhan to cabinet rank in the recent reshuffle of union cabinet was also reflective of spotlight on Odisha.
Naveen Babu is resting on his glory as Odisha’s longest serving chief minister. But the state has lagged behind from all fronts with corruption and maladministration all pervasive in his regime. His 18 years of uninterrupted rule has resulted in poverty and backwardness.
The BJP president has visited Odisha, which is a high-priority State for the party after West Bengal in the eastern part of the country, fourth time in a year. He called upon 35000 booth level workers to disseminate central government’s contribution to State’s development and at the same time make people aware as to how BJD government was wasting central fund.
