Bhubaneswar :31/1/19: National Convener Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal today said BJD, BJP and Congress has formed an unholy alliance in Odisha with the regional party ruling in the State with mining mafias’ support.
Three parties have tacit understanding in the loot of mining resources of the State. And the spoils of the mining loot is being pocketed by the three political parties and powerful mining lobby, he said while addressing a rally at lower PMG square on Thursday afternoon.
Delhi people have brought about a change in Delhi & Aam Admi Party came to power in the union territory with wholehearted support of people. The same thing may take place here with people’s support to overthrow the corrupt government in a poor state like Odisha. People hold the key to show the door to the corrupt alliance of the government with funding from mining mafias, he said.
There is no difference between BJD, Congress and BJP, all led by bunch corrupt leaders. There is no opposition party in Odisha. Three parties have joined hands to loot money, he alleged.
Odisha is a poor state and its people are still languishing in poverty and backwardness even 70 years after the independence. There is the need of second independence in Odisha so that honest and transparent governance can be provided to the State. People in Odisha can decide whether mining mafias’ rule stays here or people’s rule will be restored here like that was witnessed four years back in Delhi, he said.
AAP rule has brought about transformation in the spheres of education, power and health. Our government schools are performing better than the private schools, which is being manifested in examination results. Now wealthy people are transferring their wards to government schools because of improvement in academic and infrastructure in government schools since the APP government came to power. Odisha could see change government school standard if AAP is elected in the State.
Similarly the power tariff in Delhi is the lowest in the country though the union territory is not a power producing region. While electricity tariff stands at Rs one per unit in Delhi, the same amount of consumption is being charged Rs 5 in Odisha, which is a power surplus State, he said while listing out achievements of AAP government in Delhi in other spheres.
