PM Modi Comments June 4 as Deadline for BJD Government in Odisha

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, during a rally in Behrampur, Odisha, declared June 4 as the expiry date for the ruling Biju Janata Dal (BJD) government in the state. He announced this while addressing the public on Monday, emphasizing the significance of two concurrent "Yagya" ceremonies happening in Odisha – one for the formation of the central government and the other for the state. Modi expressed confidence in the BJP's ability to establish a "double engine government" in Odisha for the first time.

Modi, speaking amidst the enthusiastic crowd, expressed his gratitude for being in the sacred land of Lord Jagannath and attributed Lord Ramlalla's presence in the grand temple in Ayodhya to the power of voters. He highlighted the parallel processes underway in Odisha, aiming to secure both a strong central government and a BJP-led state government.

He extended an invitation to the people for the announcement of BJP's Chief Ministerial candidate on June 4, with the swearing-in ceremony scheduled for June 10 in Bhubaneswar. Modi took the opportunity to criticize the current BJD administration, alleging that its leaders had amassed significant wealth while the state's populace languished in poverty.

Touching upon healthcare, Modi reiterated his government's commitment to providing free medical treatment up to Rs. 5 lakh, lamenting that Odisha had not availed itself of this initiative due to the BJD's obstruction of the Ayushman Bharat Yojana. He assured that upon assuming power, his government would diligently fulfill the promises outlined in their party manifesto.

The Assembly elections in Odisha, coinciding with the Lok Sabha polls, are scheduled in four phases from May 13 to June 1, with the results to be announced on June 4. In the 2019 elections, BJD secured 112 out of 146 Assembly seats, with BJP and Congress obtaining 23 and 9 seats, respectively. Similarly, in the Lok Sabha polls, BJD emerged victorious with 12 seats, followed closely by BJP with 8 seats and Congress with a single seat.
