Bhubaneswar, Apr 14 (PTI) BJP national spokesperson

Sambit Patra Wednesday took a swipe at Odisha Chief Secretary

S C Mohapatra over his visit to Balasore ahead of Chief

Minister Naveen Patnaik announcing a development package for

the coastal town on Tuesday.

Patnaik on Tuesday announced a Rs 155 crore

developmental package for Balasore Municipality area, barely

hours after a team of senior officers comprising the chief

secretary, 5T Secretary VK Pandian and Works Secretary Krishan

Kumar made an assessment of the basic requirements for the

all-round development of Balasore town.

The BJP spokesperson also cautioned the chief

secretary by saying: "After our state BJP president''s

allegation, you came in a very political colour to politically

influence the by-election. It is a matter of grave concern.

Suresh Babu, this is not expected from you. You are tied with

the Constitution of India and not with the ruling party."

Patra in another tweet also said: "Suresh Ji, you are

a senior Odia administrative officer. You visited Balasore...

When CM @Naveen_Odisha announced to take responsibility of

poll bound Pipili AC, coinciding with that you came with a

package for Balasore whr by-poll was held in recent past."

He also said that you (CS) went to Balasore. What

about Bijepur, Patkura and Tirtol where CM had made similar

announcements of taking personal care. Whether CM remembers

these too, he asked.

Patra said this referring to the chief ministers

announcement of Rs 155 crore developmental package for

Balasore where a by-poll was held in November last year.

Patnaik announced the package only some days before

the by-poll in Pipili where he too pledged before the people

to take personal care of Pipili Delang area.

BJD''s Rajya Sabha member Sasmit Patra retorted quickly

to reply to Sambit Patra. "Why are you against the development

of Balasore. Are you anti-Balasore? Have you consulted Hon''ble

Minister and Balasore MP @pcsarangi Shri Pratap Sarangi before

making such Tweets?," the BJD spokesperson wrote in his

twitter post. PTI AAM
