Bhubaneswar: As the proceedings of Assembly got disrupted by opposition BJP members on Tuesday pre-noon over the Gangadhar Meher Lift Canal System budget allocation issue and theSpeaker had to adjourn it till 3 pm, BJD supremo and Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik criticised his bete noire with tough replies outside the House.

In his media reactions in Odia, Naveen rebuked, “Kumbhira kandana kandantu nahin, Brahmani nadi uparey bridge karantu (don’t shed crocodile tears, build bridge over Brahmani river).”

In response, BJP MLA Pradeep Purohit hit back, “Crocodile tears are rather being shed by the BJD Government and its leaders here. Despite being in power, they are dilly-dallying on forest clearances and other issues. BJP is never of the habit of shedding crocodile tears.”

In his media reactions, Leader of Opposition Narasingha Mishra commented, “So far false promises are concerned, both BJD and BJP are on a competition spree. BJP has told lie and not doing anything. Building of Brahmani bridge is a small matter. The Prime Minister had promised to give each family of our country Rs 15 lakh after bringing back black money from foreign banks. But failed. BJP president later on defended saying that it was a ‘jumla’ (phrase). BJD and its Government here also same in such a race.”
