Bhubaneswar: Union minister and BJP leader Prakash Javadekar on Thursday  dubbed the BJD government in Odisha as “inefficient” and accused it of hijacking Central schemes and presenting programmes such as the ‘Rs 1 per kg rice’ as its own.

“The BJD government in Odisha is inefficient... There should be no doubt about it. Despite its immense potential, the state has failed to witness the desired development,” the Union human resource development minister, who is on a visit to the state, told reporters here.

 

The people of the state are, therefore, unhappy and they want an answer from the state government regarding the lack of development during the past several years, he claimed.

Lashing out at the Naveen Patnaik government for boasting about providing rice at Rs 1 per kg to the poor, Mr Javadekar said the Centre contributes Rs 27 while the state government provides only Rs 2.

Therefore, it should be described as ‘Modi rice’ scheme and the Naveen Patnaik government should not take credit for this, he said. The Naveen government’s speciality is to take credit for different schemes, he said.
