Khandapada (Nayagarh), Mar 24:
President of Ama Odisha Party (AOP) Soumya Ranjan Patnaik on Sunday urged the party workers to make sincere efforts to win the hearts of the people through good behavior.
“The party workers must restrain themselves from giving false promises to the people, luring them with monetary benefits or threatening them with physical force, and make sincere efforts to win their hearts through good behavior”, Patnaik said while addressing the party workers at a meeting presided over by Khandapada NAC councilor Mihir Kumar Mishra at Soumya Vihar here.
“Unlike other parties, my party would work as per the decisions of the grass root workers,” he said while making his party’s stand clear.
Stating that lack of political will has made Khandapada one of the poorest and backward areas of the state, Patnaik said the time has come for the people to restore the lost glory of their area where the world famous astronomer Pathani Samant was born.
He also called upon the local youths to concentrate on their studies and bring laurel for Khandapada.
The AOP supremo promised that the Ama Odisha Party would make sincere efforts for the development of agriculture and the welfare of the farmers while ensuring a transparent and corruption-free administration.
Among others, councilor Pradipta Sahu, Budhei Pradhan, Saroj Kumar Pradhan, former deputy NAC chairman Trilochan Padhiary, senior-most party leader Gangadhar Das, advocate Girija Mishra, notary Himanshu Mohan Patnaik, advocate Babuli Mishra, Mrutyunjaya Mishra, Lingaraj Das, Hari Champati and Subala Pradhan also addressed the meeting.
