Bhubaneswar: As BJD supremo and Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has not only formed a Manifesto Committee of the party but has also launched a programme for seeking people’s opinion, the Manifesto Committee today held its first meeting and reviewed the suggestions of the people.

Briefing media, Rajya Sabha member and BJD vice-president Prasanna Acharya said, “Today we had the first meeting of our Manifesto Committee. Preliminary discussion has been made. To sum up, we have never given false promises to the people of Odisha. We utter practical words and try to implement. Hence, the people of Odisha are repeatedly reposing faith in Naveen Patnaik and Biju Janata Dal (BJD).”

“As this time we are also going to be in the fray, the same principle will be observed. We’ll give people practicable promises and keep them in true letter and spirit,” he averred.

He also stated, “We are not drafting our electoral manifesto simply confining ourselves to the four walls of our house. We are seeking opinions of all the areas of Odisha and all the sections of people. ‘Ghare Ghare Sankha, Matamata Diyanti Apana, Palana Karnati Naveen’. The objective of this programme is to gather opinions of each household on the schemes we have implemented for the general public in the last five years. We have wanted to know how those schemes and programmes have been practical and benefitted the people.”

“If the people suggest that any scheme has been incomplete and need more to be done, that is also being analysed by us. If the people opine that a scheme is very beneficial and need to be carried on, that opinion is also being reviewed. If the people suggest that any scheme need not be implemented further, that is also been reviewed by us. Hence, people’s opinion is our opinion,” he asserted.

The senior BJD leader also claimed, “We lay stress on agriculture, employment for the unemployed youths, welfare of the labour force, basic amenities of the rural populace, etc. Reviewing all these, our manifesto will be drafted accordingly.”
