Bhadrak: Union Minister and senior BJP leader Dharmendra Pradhan on Sunday targeted the Odisha Government saying the latter is purposely delaying the Textile Park project to be set up by Indian Oil at Bhadrak and also the Coastal Highway project.
“Both the projects have the capacity to usher a new era of progress and development in the State. Unfortunately, due support from the State Government is still awaited,” said Pradhan, adding that it’s time to change the Government in Odisha and strengthen.
“BJP Government in Centre and also in Odisha will fasten the development process of Odisha,” added Pradhan while addressing the booth-level party workers at Ranital here.
He alleged that poor people are not able to get a house under PMAY in Odisha due to rampant corruption and PC culture.
“At least 30 lakh people in Odisha don’t have a house while about 20 lakh don’t have land records. Youths of Mayurbhanj, Keonjhar, Balasore and Bhadrak district are moving to other States for employment opportunities,” said Pradhan.
The Union Minister also targeted both Congress and BJD over the Rafale issue while and accused Congress president Rahul Gandhi and BJD of being ‘lobbyists’ of Euro fighters, the competitive plane supplier company.
