Berhampur: Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik says Rs 80/quintal hike in paddy MSP is quite disappointing. BJD will stage protests over the Centre’s decision to hike Rs 80/quintal paddy MSP, says party spokesperson Samir Das
Rejecting the Opposition criticism over BJD’s support, Naveen said, “The NDA candidate is a distinguished Scheduled Caste person. This apart, BJP had supported our (BJD) candidate PA Sangma in the last Presidential election.”
