BJD kicked off its Jan Sampark Padayatra from Mahisakhala slum

Bhubaneswar:2/10/17: The BJD today kicked off its Jan Sampark Padayatra from Mahisakhala slum here to reach the masses. However, launching a scathing attack on the ruling party, the BJP has dubbed the move as a cover up for the government’s failure on all fronts. BJP leaders blamed the State government for poor health services, vacant teacher posts and frequent collapse of bridges alleging that BJD ministers have nexus with contractorsjana2.

On the other hand, BJD said the objective of the Padayatra is to create awareness among the people and inform them about the injustice being meted out to Odisha by the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre. “Our aim is to make Odisha No 1 State. We are working for the Maa, Mati, Manisha (Mother, soil and people) and will continue to do that. We will go to the people to aware them about our various developmental activities and central apathy,” BJD chief and CM Naveen Patnaik said soon after flagging of the foot march campaign in the State capital.
