Bhubaneswar: BJD chief Naveen Patnaik meets CEO; says there’s no restriction on PM-KISAN scheme but KALIA Scheme disbursal has been stalled. Disappointed to see that BJP complained to EC about KALIA scheme, farmers will give them a befitting reply.
“I had come here to meet the Chief Electoral Officer about a strong complaint of the election office stopping our government’s KALIA scheme for the farmers. This is unfortunate,” says Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik after meeting the CEO .
Patnaik, accompanied by senior party leaders Bhartruhari Mahtab and Prasanna Patasani, met the Odisha CEO and urged him to start distribution of financial assistance under the KALIA scheme to farmers in two weeks of time.
