‘Where were Rahul, Sonia and Modi when Phailin hit Odisha’

‘Where were Rahul, Sonia and Modi when Phailin hit Odisha’
‘Where were Congress president Sonia Gandhi, party vice-president Rahul Gandhi, BJP president Rajnath Singh and party’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi when people suffered due to cyclone Phailin and subsequent floods,’ Patnaik asked, addressing a massive women’s rally in Ganjam district, the worst hit by both the cyclone and the floods.

Patnaik targeted both the Congress and BJP leaders at his first public meeting after the Election Commission announced dates for the general elections. Sonia, Rahul and Modi made beeline for Uttarakhand when the Himalayan state was hit by a disaster, but they were not seen anywhere in Odisha even as the state was hit by the very severe cyclonic storm like Phailin and resultant floods, Patnaik said.

Ridiculing BJP’s ‘One Vote, One Note’ slogan, the BJD supremo said, ‘A large number of people from Ganjam work in Surat and other parts of Gujarat and contribute to the development of that state. But not a single note (money) came from that state when majority of people were affected in the calamities.’
