Bhubaneswar: Biju Janata Dal (BJD) chief Naveen Patnaik, who is otherwise known for his soft stand towards the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) despite claims of equidistance from it and the Congress, today targeted the BJP though without naming it for destroying the federal structure of the country for its vested interest.
“Politicians of national parties have repeatedly disappointed Odisha. By destroying the federal structure of the country they are working for the vested interests of their party.

“Our party which believes in the ideology of Biju babu and is committed to the interests of 4.5 crore Odias. It is committed to the soil, water and air of Odisha. You all have to work to further take ahead the era development that has started. In the field of welfare our State has been a model in the entire country,” Patnaik exhorted party workers.
