Bargarh: Continuing his frontal attack on the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led NDA government, Biju Janata Dal president and Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik today said that the State Government’s ambitious KALIA scheme was stopped midway due to the conspiracy by the BJP.
The Odisha CM, while addressing an election rally in Attabira assembly segment under Bargarh Lok Sabha constituency, said that more than 40 lakh farmers have been benefited from the scheme.
Thanking people who came in larger numbers to attend the meeting braving scorching heat, the BJD supremo said that his government is always committed for the development of the farmers.
He reiterated, ‘No one can stop the scheme till I am alive. Not a single farmer would be left out of the scheme”.
Taking a potshot at the Centre, the BJD supremo said that the Central leaders make big promises for Odisha ahead of elections and then disappear.
The Bargarh Lok Sabha seat will go to polls on April 18 simultaneously with the seven assembly constituencies.
