BJP Gives a Befitting Reply to Naveen’s ‘Next Odisha CM’ Question

Author : Odisha Today Bureau | Posted on: 2019-04-14

Soon after BJD supremo and Odisha CM Naveen mocked the BJP over chief ministerial candidate, saffron party’s Odisha in-charge Arun Singh hit back saying that, “An Odia speaking person will be party’s CM candidate in Odisha.”


“BJP president Amit Shah had categorically said that an Odia speaking person would be the CM candidate in Odisha,” said Singh.

 

Patnaik also asked the BJP to declare from which constituency the chief ministerial candidate was contesting. "The people of Odisha want to know who is BJP's CM candidate and from which constituency he/she is contesting? Is the BJP afraid to announce its CM candidate?" said Patnaik addressing a rally at Daspalla of the Nayagarh district.

 

Naveen questioned BJP, "People want to know who is the second engine of the BJP's double-engine?"

 

Taking a dig at the BJP's double-engine formula, the BJD President said that when elections approach the Delhi engine appears in Odisha and disappears soon after.

 

The CM remarked, “"Where were they during natural disasters, like cyclonic storm Phailin, Hudhud, Titli, drought and floods?"

 

Responding to his question, Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said: "4.5 crore Odias are our chief ministerial candidates and the BJP's government in Odisha will be our second engine."

 

BJP's Odisha in-charge Arun Singh asserted, ““Out of fear, Naveen Patnaik for the first time is contesting from two Assembly constituencies. BJP’s parliamentary board takes a decision on who will be the chief ministerial candidate. BJP has won with thumping majority in several States without projecting its CM candidate”.

 

The Lok Sabha and Assembly polls are being held simultaneously in four phases in Odisha.
