Bargarh: Trust one who works for you, said Union Minister of Petroleum & Natural Gas Dharmendra Pradhan while addressing a public gathering at Laumunda in Bijepur block of Bargarh district on Friday.
With a mention of how BJP's poster boy Prime Minister Narendra Modi has taken the responsibility of providing housing for all, toilet, piped drinking water, electricity and LPG connection in all households, Pradhan urged the voters to strengthen his fists.
Pradhan was in Bijepur to campaign for BJP candidate Sanat Gartia for the Bijepur Assembly by-election scheduled to be held on October 21. The Bijepur bypoll was necessitated after Naveen Patnaik vacated the assembly constituency.
Reportedly, Gartia had lost to Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik in the bypoll to the seat this year. He got 53,482 votes (28.91 per cent) against Patnaik, who got 1,10,604 votes (59.78 per cent).
