Bhubaneswar: New BJP State president Basant Panda was given rousing reception on his first visit to Nuapada, after elected as party chief, on Monday.
Addressing a public meeting there Panda reiterated his allegation that the State Government is trying to take all credits out of Central schemes of the Narendra Modi Government.
He said even if the Central Government meets a major part of expenditure for food stuffs under the NFSA, yet the State Government is trying to get mileage of it naming it as its own.
Alleging that massive irregularities in selection of NFSA beneficiaries have been committed, Panda too demanded that the State Government prepare a fresh list and ensure that no deserving person is deprived of.
Many people greeted Panda as he reached at Khariar. He walked through the town in a rally with thousands of his supporters and reached the meeting venue at Nuapada in the evening.
Panda said he would request the Centre to provide railway connectivity to Khariar.
