Baripada: Senior leader and former Minister Damodar today again blasted at chief minister Naveen Patnaik, calling him a ‘corrupt leader’ at a public rally in Baripada.
Addressing the meeting organised by Mayurbhanj Milita Kriyanusthan Committee, Rout, who was recently expelled from BJD for raising corruption issues, said the CM has done nothing for the people of Mayurbhanj. Patnaik has ditched every section including SC/ST and general mass in Mayurbhanj district.
“Being the son of Biju Babu, how he has betrayed the people here. Biju Babu was a crorepati. But, he never hesitated to sell his treasure for the sake of State. But, Naveen’s policy is – join BJD and be a crorepati overnight”, Rout lambasted.
He further slammed the CM saying that he doesn’t have love for Odia and Odisha people. Even he does doesn’t know names of all his party MLAs. Moreover Patnaik is also unaware of number of Tehsils in Odisha, Damodar Rout added.
Hitting out at the private secretary to CM, VK Pandian, Rout alleged that Pandian is facing sexual harrassemnt charges and is involved in dal scam. Though Prime Minister Narendra Modi had directed Odisha Chief Secretary for a probe, nothing has been done so far,” Rout alleged.
