BJP al­leges to­tal col­lapse of law and or­der in State

The Political and Business Daily - - ODISHA FOCUS -

AL­LEG­ING 'to­tal col­lapse' of law and or­der and ad­min­is­tra­tive ma­chin­ery in the State un­der BJD rule, BJP to­day said it would launch a state-wide cam­paign to make peo­ple aware of the fail­ures of Naveen Pat­naik govern­ment on all fronts.

"Crim­i­nals are hav­ing a field day in the state due to com­plete col­lapse of law and or­der. The BJD govern­ment has failed mis­er­ably to con­trol crimes due to its in­ef­fi­ciency," State BJP spokesman Suresh Pu­jary told re­porters af­ter a meet­ing of the state ex­ec­u­tive.

De­scrib­ing the re­cent in­ci­dent of set­ting on fire of a dalit mi­nor girl in Ken­dra­para dis­trict as an ex­am­ple of law­less­ness, Pu­jary said in­ci­dents of mur­ders, rapes, rob­beries, loot and other crimes are soar­ing as the State gov­ern- ment was in­sen­si­tive and in­ef­fi­cient to han­dle the sit­u­a­tion.

Terming the re­cent killing of five mem­bers of a fam­ily in Bolan­gir dis­trict as bar­baric, he said Odisha ap­pears to have be­come the most un­safe state in the coun­try.

Slam­ming the govern­ment for dis­mal show in health­care sec­tor, he said the death of nine new­born ba­bies dur­ing a span of 22 hours at VSS Med­i­cal Col­lege and Hos­pi­tal at Burla was a re­flec­tion of the sad state of af­fairs.

Al­leg­ing a se­ries of scams in the state, Pu­jary said the BJD govern­ment failed to take proper ac­tion with re­gard to min­ing scan­dal, chit­fund scam and other ir­reg­u­lar­i­ties.

In or­der to make peo­ple aware of the fail­ures of the govern­ment, BJP would un­der­take a mas­sive cam­paign across the state dur­ing the next three months for which a blue­print is­be­ing pre­pared, he added.
