The election symbols are being used in government programmes. Public money is being used keeping in view the election and votes, he claimed.

He further said, according to NHFS data per capita expenditure of the people of the state has gone up by three times but no increase in the income of the people.

Claiming that farmers of the state have been betrayed, Mohanty said no irrigation facilities have been provided to the agricultural land as

People of Odisha will not tolerate this government anymore and they will teach BJD a lesson in the forthcoming elections, the Congress leader claimed.
