Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Suryabanshi Suraj has alleged that a Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra vehicle, meant to showcase the success of the Central government’s schemes, was vandalised in Odisha’s Dhamnagar by the workers of the ruling Biju Janata Dal.
Suraj condemned the deliberate defacement and vandalism of the Viksit Bharat Sankalp Rath, including posters and cutouts featuring Prime Minister Narendra Modi and alleged that the act was a “meticulously planned conspiracy by the BJD Party.”
While speaking to ANI, the BJP MLA said that 5-6 workers of BJD damaged the cutouts of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and vandalised the vehicle.
The incident took place in Bhadrak’s Dhamnagar when BJP supporters led by party MLA Suryabanshi Suraj were conducting a public programme, they added.
“PM Modi has started it with the motive to reach poor people. When this programme was going on in my constituency, hundreds of people were gathered. It was a government programme; at that time 5-6 workers of BJD damaged the cutouts of PM Modi and vandalised the vehicle,” he said.
Earlier, he took to X and shared a video of the incident, and termed it “condemnable and distressing”.
“The deliberate defacement and vandalisation of the Viksit Bharat Sankalp Rath, along with posters and cutouts featuring Prime Minister Shri @narendramodi, by members of the ruling @bjd_odisha in Chudakuti Panchayat within the Dhamnagar Assembly constituency of Bhadrak district, is both condemnable and distressing,” Suryabanshi Suraj said.
He further said that this reprehensible act appears to be a “meticulously planned conspiracy by the BJD Party”.
“Targeting the central government’s initiatives reflects a lack of appreciation for the greater good and welfare of the people. It is evident that the ruling @bjd_odisha is finding it difficult to acknowledge the positive impact of the welfare and developmental initiatives undertaken by PM @narendramodi Government in Odisha,” he added.
He also alleged that members of the BJD party created chaos during a crucial medical checkup for hundreds of women while registration was underway for various schemes implemented by the Modi government.
“The unsettling incident that transpired today, is unfortunate within the framework of a democratic system,” he said.
Suraj further said that it is disheartening to observe that the party seems unwilling to acknowledge the fact that the PM Modi government is effectively extending its reach to all eligible beneficiaries in the state.
“The current mindset and attitude exhibited by the party leaders and workers towards the people of Odisha are concerning and is not a good sign. Yesterday, I had communicated details about the #ViksitBharatSankalpYatra programme and ensured the security of the Rath, coordinating with the district administration, including PD & BDO. It appears that the BJD party is obstructing people from benefiting from the central government initiatives,” he added
