Badamba: BJD president and Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik targets Centre during a poll meeting in Badamba in Cuttack district. CM Naveen Patnaik says, “BJP’s double engine govt in five States got derailed & its main engine is going to derail on May 23.”
“Now, the big leaders of BJP are talking about the double engine. The Odisha people are questioning who their engine in the state is and why the double engine derailed in five states. Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh Punjab and Karnataka have now single engine,” Patnaik said.
Addressing public meeting at Banki-Badamba in Cuttack today, Patnaik predicted that the BJP’s main engine will also derail on May 23 when the results of the general elections will be declared.
“The central leaders remember about the Odisha people during elections only. After realizing the mood of the public, they are sensing loss in the general elections and acting bizarrely,” the BJD president said.
Addressing another public rally in Dhenkanal and Angul, Patnaik appealed to the people to question the central leaders why the revision of the rate of royalty on coal has not been done yet.
