BJD harassing us when PM needs support; BJP-Odisha govt running partnership: Rahul Gandhi

ROURKELA: Congress MP and former AICC president Rahul Gandhi launched a scathing attack on the BJD government in Odisha during the second day of his Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra at Rourkela on Wednesday.Addressing people at Panposh Gandhi Square here, the Congress leader alleged that the BJP and BJD has a “partnership” in Odisha. “I have seen in the parliament when Narendra Modi needs support, he talks to Naveen Patnaik and the BJD starts harassing us. Only the Congress is fighting against the partnership government of BJD and BJP in the state,” Rahul said.Gandhi claimed that it is the Congress party alone which has been opposing the BJD-BJP combine for the people of Odisha.Gandhi said: “I have come to Odisha to open a shop of love in the market of hatred. (‘Nafrat ki bazaar me mohabbat ki dukan khulne aaya hu’)”.The Congress leader also came down heavily on Odisha’s BJD government saying that as many as 30 lakh people from the state have migrated as labourers to other states for livelihood as the state government “was not working for them”.”While 30 lakh people have migrated to other states for their livelihood, 30 crorepati from outside Odisha have come here to loot the state’s wealth,” Gandhi said.
