MODI PATNAIK RUNNING A PARTNERSHIP GOV IN ODISHA I CAN SEE IT IN PARLIAMENT: RAHUL GANDHI
Modi, Patnaik running a partnership govt in Odisha, I can see it in Parliament: Rahul Gandhi
Rahul Gandhi also raked up issues of large-scale migration, injustice to tribals and backward classes, and “loot” of natural resources by industrialists.
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, who led the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra into Odisha on Wednesday, accused the ruling BJD and the opposition BJP of running a “partnership government” in the state.
Addressing the public on his way from Rourkela to Sundargarh, a route that took him through tribal-dominated areas, he also raked up issues of large-scale migration, injustice to tribals and backward classes, and “loot” of natural resources by industrialists.
“The partnership government of Naveen Patnaik and Narendra Modi is being run here in Odisha. Both are hand in glove and work together, which I can see in the Parliament. The Congress is fighting against both parties here,” said Gandhi, setting the tone for the party’s Odisha unit for the upcoming polls.
His allegations come barely a week after Prime Minister Narendra Modi, during a visit to Odisha, refrained from attacking the Patnaik government.
