Koraput (Odisha) [India], Mar 29 (ANI): Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan on Friday criticised Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik-led Odisha government for stopping all the initiatives of the central government.
"Whether it is Ayushman Bharat, PM-KISAN or Pradhan Mantri Shram Yogi Maan-dhan, the Odisha government has stopped all the initiatives of the Centre. They are afraid that Prime Minister Modi's popularity will increase if they will do so," Pradhan told ANI here.
He went on to add that in the coming Lok Sabha and Odisha Assembly elections, the BJP will form the government, both in the Centre and state.
"Prime Minister Narendra Modi's leadership will get huge support this time. He will have a double engine government in Delhi as well as Odisha," he said. (ANI)
