“Ruling BJD has always neglected Pipili. Former Minister and MLA Pradeep Maharathy had not done any work in the constituency. Unemployment is a big problem here. People are going outside in search of work due to lack of jobs here. This situation will never continue. People of Pipili will certainly send BJP candidate Ashrit Pattanayak to the State Assembly this time,” said Purandeswari.
Purendeswar massively campaigned for Pattanayak in Pipili and Delanga block areas today. She attended road shows and addressed bypoll ralies at different places.
Purandeswari alleged that BJD Government does politics in the name of women but forget them after elections. But the BJP Government respects women always by doing development works for them.
“The Narendra Modi Government has introduced schemes like Awas Yojana, Matrutua Bandan, Beti Padhao, Beti Bachao, Sukanya Samruddhi, Ujjwala Yojana, Toilets under Swachh Bharat for women,” said Purandeswari.
She said Pipili people have not got Fani assistance yet even as they had been affected severely. The State Government has failed to establish an industry in the area, she alleged.
Puraneswari said violence against women in Odisha is on the rise. Over 22,000 children have gone missing in Odisha in the last 5 years. The State Government has failed in providing protection to women and girl.
Stating that Ashrit Pattanayak has been in association with people of Pipili always, Purendeswari said people of Pipili will certainly make him win this time.
