BJP ready for a debate with ruling BJD on Odisha’s development agenda

Bhubaneswar:9/9/17: A day after BJD dared BJP for an open debate, the saffron party today said it’s ready for a debate with ruling BJD on Odisha’s development agenda and central government’s aid to it.

We are ready for a debate. Dharmendra Pradhan had earlier on October 2016 had dared the Naveen Patnaik government to debate his government’s achievements during the last 17 years. But it did not had had the moral guts to face the challenge, the state BJP unit vice president Pruthiraj Harichandan told reporters here today.

But the debate should focus on- Why does odisha lag behind in development index? Why is corruption on the ascendency in Odisha?

Odisha has received Rs 4 lakh crore from the union government since past three years. Still BJD is playing to the gallery and is resorting to rake up the central neglect bogey. The debate would have to be based on it. We will explain everything to the people on BJD’s misleading harangue, he said.

The debate should be between union minister Dharmendra Pradhan and Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik. And the medium of communication should be in Odia in the larger interest of people of the state. The BJD is at will to decide the time, place and the venue, he added
