Odisha: Amid tight security, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday addressed a public rally in Odisha’s Cuttack, marking four years of the BJP-led government at the Centre.
Addressing a public meeting at Baji Jatra ground on the banks of river Mahanadi in Cuttack, Modi said, “Today the nation is going from kala dhan (black money) to jan dhan (people’s wealth). It has moved from anarchy to good governance.”
The Prime Minister also said that when the government is committed and not confused, decisions like surgical strike are taken.
Attacking Congress, Modi asked why didn’t the Congress realise that the poor are not being entertained at banks. “Why didn’t the Congress ever see that the lives of poor people also hold value and they also need life insurance.” he asked.
Odisha Police has put in place elaborate security arrangements in the twin cities of Bhubaneswar and Cuttack ahead.
Special arrangements have also been made for traffic management, and there will be a few diversions on different routes to prevent road congestion.
