The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday launched "Jan Adalat" (people's court) programme in all the 21 Lok Sabha constituencies across Odisha. The programme was held in three Lok Sabha segments of Berhampur, Puri and Kalahandi on the first day on Monday. According to state BJP vice-president Samir Mohanty, similar programmes are scheduled to be launched in all the constituencies of Lok Sabha by February 17.
Mohanty further accused the 19-year-old BJD government in Odisha of being "neck deep in corruption" and said the programme would highlight inefficiencies of the ruling party.
A court atmosphere will be created where a renowned person will preside over as the judge. People attending the programme will speak out against the corruption of their representatives and the judge will deliver the judgement.
