Aska (Odisha): Dubbing Congress and BJP as ‘migratory birds' who visit Odisha only during elections, BJD chief Naveen Patnaik today said the two parties had all along ignored the interests of the state.
”Leaders of both Congress and BJP visit Odisha seeking votes during elections.
But, where were they when the cyclone Phailin hit the state?” Patnaik asked while addressing a public meeting
here during his two-day whirlwind tour of Aska and Berhampur parliamentary constituencies.
”BJD is committed to the development of Odisha. We have no other agenda than development of the state,” Patnaik said.
