BJP accuses Naveen of having unholy nexus with Congress
The BJP on Saturday accused the ruling BJD of having a secret alliance with the Congress at the national level casting aspersion on the UPA's 'prolonged silence' on the alleged law and order breakdown in Orissa.
"We have to think on this line because Patnaik never opens his mouth against Congress president Sonia Gandhi while the UPA government also does not interfere in the state affairs, despite the worsening of the law and order situation," BJP national secretary Santosh Gangwar said in Berhampur while inaugurating party's two-day state executive meeting.
Union home minister P Chidambaram's recent statement praising the state government's handling of the recent hostage crisis was clear indication that the ruling BJD in the state has a secret link with the Congress at the national level, another senior leader said.
The BJP Secretary also criticised the BJD government over the halt of anti-maoist operation.
"The last time I was in Orissa, I came to know the state government was indulging in coal and mining scams. Now the government is entangled in the dal scam for which one head of a minister has aready rolled," he said.
Similarly the UPA-II at the Centre was also in neckdeep corruption like scams in telecom, Commonwealth Games, he said claiming there was no difference between UPA at the Center and BJD government at the state.
The party at its executive meeting would chalk out plans on how to reach in every village and "to expose the corruption" of the UPA government at Center and the BJD government in the state, he said.
The dal scam, coal scams, law and order situation as well as the suicide of the farmers in different places due to crop damage due to untimely rain and the government’s inaction in compensating them would be discussed in the two-day meet, BJP state president Jual Oram said.
