BJP stir from Aug 1 on Nagada deaths

Bhubaneswar, July 22: Upping ante against the State Government over the malnutrition death of 18 children at Nagada in the Sukinda valley of mineral rich Jajpur district, the BJP women wing on Friday decided to stage dharnas in front of all Child Development Project Offices (CDPOs) from August 1 to 5 across the State.

Claiming that the State Government has failed on all fronts, women wing Odisha president Prabhati Parida after chairing the wing’s state executive body meeting told reporters here that they will not tolerate the injustice meted out to the women and children by the Naveen Patnaik Government.

“While the Narendra Modi Government at the Centre has been successfully implementing various women and children welfare schemes, including Beti Bacaho, Beti Padhao, why the State Government has failed to perform in these respects,” questioned Parida.

BJP women wing national general secretary Saroj Pandey who attended the executive meeting lambasted the Naveen Patnaik Government on the Nagada issue too.

“Not only the State Government has failed to implement its own schemes but also failed to utilise the Central funds,” said Pandey.

The executive also passed a political resolution and a special resolution on the Nagada issue.
