MLAs of BJD submitted a memorandum to Prez over BJP-led Centre’s neglect

Bhubaneswar:8/2/19: The MLAs of Odisha-ruling Biju Janata Dal today submitted a memorandum addressed to the President of India through the Governor over the unemployment issue and the BJP-led Central Government’s neglect towards Odisha.

After unruly scenes prevailed in the Odisha Assembly of the fifth consecutive day, the BJD members marched out of the House in a rally to the Raj Bhavan and submitted the memo to Odisha Governor Prof Dr Ganeshi Lal.

Talking to the media persons, senior BJD MLA Sanjay Das Burma said, “In 2014 poll manifesto, PM Narendra Modi had promised to provide employment to two crore unemployed youths of the country every year. Accordingly, Odisha’s share is proportionately 36 lakh unemployed youths in five years. Hence, we are submitting today a memorandum to the President of India through the Governor.”

“We demand that the Central Government should publish the list of 36 lakh youths of Odisha who have been employed in MCL, NALCO, IOCL, etc all the Centre-run PSUs,” the BJD leader said.

Das Burma further threatened to intensify the stir by taking it to the state-level as the Centre has been allegedly deceiving the youths and workforce of the State.
