REMOVE DASBURMA IMMEDIATELY: BJP
Sunday, 10 April 2016 | PNS | BALANGIR | in Bhubaneswar
BJP State president Basanta Panda on Saturday demanded that Food Supplies and Consumer Welfare Minister Sanjaya Dasburma be removed immediately in view of his alleged involvement in the chit fund scam. “The Minister should be removed as the CBI has issued a notice for his alleged involvement in chit fund scam,” Panda said during his party’s Jankalyan Yatra here.
He slammed the State Government for making a habit of raising neglect allegations against the Centre.
“In this year’s State Budget, the Central share stands at Rs45,000 crore out of the total Rs94,000crore. The Centre has given enough money to the State. Due to inefficiency of the State Government, Rs36,000 core could not be spent and returned to Centre in the last 10 years. This being the backdrop, it is not understood how the Centre neglected Odisha,” wanted to know Panda.
Stating that while the Government claims to have given 526 types of medicines under the Niramaya Yojana free of cost, he said only 25 varieties of medicines were found available at the Chudapali CHC during an inquiry. “It shows the real face of the Naveen Patnaik Government,” he said.
He said BJP workers will reach out to people with the Narendra Modi Government’s welfare programmes like Pradhan Mantri Krishi Yojana, Jandhan Yojana, Mudra Yojana and PM’s plan to bring Green Revolution in eastern India.
