BJP-BJD match-fixing evident in Odisha, claims Raj Babbar
Actor-turned Congress leader Raj Babbar claimed that the BJP and the BJD have entered into "match-fixing" in Odisha, which can ensure another term for the state's ruling party.
In return, the BJD will reciprocate the gesture in the event of a hung-parliament, the Uttar Pradesh Congress president alleged.
"It is evident that there is match-fixing in Odisha. Both the BJP and the BJD are playing a friendly match and pretending animosity. The BJP may need the BJD's support in the post-poll scenario. The two parties are misleading the people," he claimed.
So, whoever wins in the polls, the people of Odisha will lose, the Congress leader said at poll meetings in Kendrapara and Bhadrak Lok Sabha constituencies.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik are cheating the people by denying them basic rights and social justice, Babbar alleged.
