The BJP women’s wing in Odisha has launched a state-wide campaign against the Naveen Patnaik-led BJD government to highlight the “atrocities” against women and the state government’s alleged complicity.
The BJP’s women wing has alleged that the “anti-women policy” of the Naveen Patnaik government has led to increased crimes against women.
Under the campaign titled “Jabab Maguchhi Odisha” (Odisha is asking for answers) starting from Tuesday, a “Jabab Maguchhi Rath” will be passing through all the 147 constituencies of the state to portray the alleged atrocities against women.
“The Rath will travel in all the 147 constituencies of Odisha, where we will be showing the video we have made on a girl who was gang-raped and killed by the BJD goons in 2011,” said Lekhasri Samantsinghar, state general secretary, BJP.
The chief minister was reacting to the remarks made by Shah at a BJP tribal convention in Puri where the saffron party chief dubbed the BJD government as a “fused transformer” and asked the people to throw it away.
Shah also described the BJD as a ‘B’ team of Congress and said both the parties were like two sides of the same coin which failed to bring development in Odisha.
