The BJP decided to take on the ruling BJD on the issues like law and order problem, women exploitation, unemployment, mismanagement in paddy procurement, border dispute, Bagala Dharmasala land dispute, power tariff hike, Ekamrakanan land transfer etc.
“The winter session of the Assembly will begin from Friday and we have planned to take on the government on a host of issues, from paddy procurement to deteriorating law and order situation,” Naik said.
He further said while the Central government has sanctioned crores of rupees for controlling COVID-19 spread, the it has failed to benefit the people due to gross mismanagement of the state government.
Similarly, the law and order situation has been deteriorating every day over the past few years. In fact, two custodial deaths reported today. The chief minister has no moral responsibility to continue in his chair, Naik said.
