Telkoi: Union petroleum, oil and natural gas minister Dharmendra Pradhan took a dig at the state government, saying all the sectors like rural connectivity, healthcare and drinking water have been in a shambles across the state.
He was addressing a rally of party workers at Telkoi of Keonjhar as part of BJP’s ‘Jabab Maguchhi Odisha’ programme Wednesday.

Thousands of workers welcomed Pradhan at the College Padia.
He was accompanied by BJP’s district unit president Radhkant Mohant, state executive member Dhanurjay Sidhhu, general secretary of state BJP Ananta nayak, women leader Sukeshi Oram, farmer leader Maheswar Sahu, Pramod Sahu, Manas Nayak in the rally.
