Speaking at a rally named Jan Jagran Maha Samavesh here in Bhubaneswar, Shah was critical of the BJD government by questioning what CM Naveen Patnaik has done in his 17 years rule for the development of Odisha?
Shah added, the government failed in overall development, even basic facility like drinking water for all has not yet been ensured by the state government. Lack of employment opportunities within the state has forced the youths of Odisha to go to other States in search of livelihood.”
