Anti incumbency may cost BJD heavily: KJD

Bhubaneswar, Dec 22: The Kosal Janata Dal (KJD) has criticized the State government for what it alleged lack of development in the State during the BJD rule.

KJD State president Baidyanath Mishra, who is taking round ‘Koshal Mukti Rath across the State, said at a press conference here on Wednesday that the teachers and the farmers appear determined to change the Government this time as the education and the agrarian sector have suffered the most.

“ The health sector performance is no better,” he added.

Mishra said, the present revenue structure of the government needs to be revisited as it doesn’t allow our employment to grow.

“Despite availability of huge quantity of minerals like coal, iron and bauxite the state has failed to develop manufacturing hubs to make value added products for sustainable development of the economy,” he said adding, agrarian distress and rural income squeeze aren’t just politically sensitive issues considered riders for economic growth but economic impediment for growth.

“Being cashless with poor purchasing power, accepting cash for votes has become a common phenomenon during elections. The MSME sector is limping and the tourism sector lacks a pan odisha approach,” Mishra said.

Notably, KJD has been registered with the Election commission of India last year as a regional party.

KJD plans field candidates in western odisha but across the state and that is the reason why the Kosal Mukti Rath is travelling, Mishra said.
