The centre is trying to play with the livelihood of fisher folks. I will not allow it to happen, he said.

The centre is trying to stop Kalia direct cash transfer scheme for the farmers. As long as I am alive, nobody can stop this scheme, he said while seeking votes for BJD.

Chilika, country’s largest brackish lake along the east-coast, is one of the hotspot of biodiversity and shelters a number of endangered species listed in the IUCN red list of threatened species. The highly productive eco-system of the lake with its rich fishery resources sustains the livelihood of thousands of fisher folk who live in and around the Lake.
