Bhubaneswar: Trying to match the agitation of BJD against the NDA Government over cash crunch in ATMs, the BJP today launched a “Latka Jari” (hanging note) campaign to corner the ruling BJD by highlighting the problems of urban areas across the State.
In Bhubaneswar, BJP activists led by former Minister Sameer Dey staged a demonstration in front of Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) office here and put up ‘Latka’ (hanging note) protesting the alleged failure of the Naveen Patnaik Government in ensuring basic civic amenities for the city denizens and large scale corruption.
The saffron party warned to stall the civic body’s functioning if grievances are not addressed within seven days.
On the other hand, alleging that the country is suffering due to the faulty economic policies of the NDA Government, BJD today hit the streets protesting against the cash crunch in all bank ATMs in the State making inconvenience for the people.
The ruling BJD activists today resorted to a two-hour silent protest near the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) regional office and in front of nationalised banks from 10 am to 12 noon across the State to protest against the cash crunch in ATMs.
The BJD alleged that ATMs of almost all the banks in the State were running dry and people were facing hardships in getting cash since last few days and there was an undeclared financial emergency in the country.
