BJD will not hold any rally in Pipili: CM Naveen

Bhubaneswar, 19/4(Ao Bureau): In the wake of rising coronavirus cases in Odisha, Odisha CM and BJD supremo Naveen Patnaik have announced to not hold any rally for Pipili by-polls.

He tweeted,”Every life is precious and I always consider people of #Odisha as my family members. In this extremely serious #COVID19 situation amidst a surge in cases in the country, Biju Janata Dal Odisha has decided not to hold any public rallies or campaign meetings in the Pipili bypoll.

BJD as a responsible party will not like to put the lives of people in danger. We contest elections to serve people. If the campaign has the potential to endanger lives, I would earnestly appeal to political parties & the Election Commission of India to reconsider both the duration & method of campaigning.

India is a mature democracy and together we can come out with a solution. Democracy is by the people, for the people, and of the people. Jai Hind.
