Bhubaneswar: BJD supremo and Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik again came down heavily on the national political parties and held them responsible for creating an uncertain atmosphere in the country. BJD supremo Patnaik said this while addressing the BJD’s Jansampark Padyatra at Unit- 6 here on Wednesday.
Patnaik said the prevailing uncertain atmosphere is not good in the interest of the nation. “It’s high time for all to strive for those democratic values which Jayaprakash Narayan had fought for his whole life,” said the Chief Minister. (Wednesday was Jayaprakash Narayan’s birth anniversary)
Without naming anyone, he also lashed out at the national parties for neglecting Odisha’s interests and misleading people by presenting a “fake picture of development.”
It should be noted that earlier in the Padyatra held at Salia Sahi here, Patnaik had accused the national parties of destroying the Federal structure of the country and working for their their own partisan interests.
