Bhubaneswar:22/10/17; Carrying forward BJP’s the grass roots connect exercise, the union Human Resources Development minister Prakash Javadekar had his lunch in the house of a common man in Buddhanagar slum colony settlement in Bhubaneswar assembly constituency.
Javadekar, who is on a visit to the state to mobilize the party cadres, dined today at the house of D. Laxmi.
“I hail from humble economic background. So I relished having lunch today in a poor woman’s house”. Javadekar said.
There is nothing new in the Dal- chawal diplomacy of BJP leaders. Shah had resorted to this strategy in other places. Skeptics however tend to believe that it’s nothing but publicity stunt to grab headlines.
The Congress leadership including Rahul Gandhi has earlier played this card by having food in dalits or backward caste people’s houses. The ruling BJD in Odisha has also treaded on this popular policy.
