Bhubaneswar, Feb 13 :
With the general elections knocking at the doors, the Naveen Patnaik government in Odisha is leaving no stones unturned in its efforts to woo every section of the voters in the state.
The bountiful government on Wednesday announced a twin bonanza aimed at wooing two different sections of people: assistance for Bhagabata Tungis in the state and a hike in the assistance for daughters’ marriage to registered construction workers to Rs 20,000.
The government also offered house building loans subject to a maximum of Rs one lakh at 2% percent interest to registered construction workers, official sources said.
