Kendrapara: In the final phase of election campaigning, Odisha Chief Minister cum supremo of Biju Janata Dal (BJD) Naveen Patnaik held a mega road show in Kendrapara today in a bid to canvass votes for his party MP and MLA candidates.
Beginning his road show from Tinimuhani, the hi-tech bus travelled by Gulnagar, Indupur, Gogua, Pattamundei, Patrapur and Aul. Later in the afternoon, road show was also held from Aul via Rajkanika and Olavar.
Highlighting the Centre’s negligence, the CM announced from the PA system, "The BJP leaders make a beeline to the State during elections but disappear during calamities. They did not come to Odisha during 'Titli', floods or drought. But are now rushing for votes," he said.
He further said, “Are only the votes of Odisha’s people valuable for BJP, not their well-being?"
He urged the voters to vote for the ‘conch’ symbol twice- once for MP and once for MLA. It is notable to mention here that BJD has fielded Ollywood superstar Anubhav Mohanty as it Lok Sabha candidate from Kendrapara.
As the CM waved to the public with a big smile on his face, a sea of supports chanted victory slogans and accompanied the bus on their bikes. The bus toured every nook and corner of the villages staying true to Naveen’s message “4.5 crore Odia people are my family.”
In the late afternoon hours, a road show is set to take place in Salepur through Haripur, Sapha,Gouda Gaon, Biswanakani, Barpada Bhagatpur and Tangi.
