In an incident, party activists led by BJD district vice-president and Zilla Parishad-8 Member Bhanu Pratap Majhi and block vice-chairman Dillip Nirmal Kar pushed to ground a nameplate of the Minister to mark their protest. They have even asked the Minister to change his attitude or else he would face wrath of party people in coming days.
According to information, ground-breaking ceremony for construction of hostel building of Kasturaba Gandhi Girl’s School was scheduled for today. However, local elected people’s representatives were not invited to the programme. This infuriated Majhi and Kar.
According to their allegation, Dholakia has not been taking panchayat level elected representatives of the party into confidence in matters of Government programmes even since he took oath as a Minister.
Even they were not informed about the felicitation programme planned for Chief Minister at Bhubaneswar on September 6.
All attempts to contact Dholakia over phone turned futile.
