Congress Observes ‘Black Day’

Bhubaneswar, Dec 26:  While the Biju Janata Dal (BJD) has started the preparations for its 21st foundation day, the Congress have chalked out their respective strategies to counter the BJD and  decided to observe the day as ‘Black Day’ in all the panchayats across the state.

Odisha Congress Chief Niranjan Patnaik said that the party will observe December 26 as ‘Black Day’ protesting the rulling-BJD to trample the rights of Panchayat samitis. “Moreover, the govt. is trying to dwindle the power of the Panchayat through its ‘Pitha’ and ‘Ama Gaon Ama Bikasha’ scheme,” said the party Chief.
