Phulbani: Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath on Monday said that fast development of Odisha can be possible if the BJP forms government both at the Centre and in the state.
Addressing a public meeting in Phulbani of Kandhamal district, Yogi appealed to the people for setting up of a double engine government in Odisha by dethroning the Naveen Patnaik-led BJD government.
During his address, Yogi paid tribute to Swami Laxmanananda Saraswati and said the monk sacrificed his life for bringing changes in the lives of tribal.
“Laxmanananda Saraswati’s efforts for tribal welfare did not go down well with the Maoists who brutally killed him. If Odisha would have BJP government, Swamiji would not have killed,” Yogi said.
He further said during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s tenure Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas is possible. During his rule, various schemes like Ujjwala scheme, Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhal scheme, PM Awas Yojana and other welfare schemes are being implemented, he added.
“Lakhs of poor people benefited from those schemes. Therefore, people want to see Modi as the prime minister of the country for the second time.
Yogi also held campaigns in Rourkela and Angul today. During his address in Rourkela, he said Odisha got two smart cities only because of PM Modi.
