Rourkela: Senior leader Dilip Ray on Thursday said that he is not a sycophant doesn’t do politics in trepidation and asked voters to not give votes to those who have failed in keeping their promises in an obvious reference to the BJP’s failures in keeping its promises of a second bridge over Brahmani river and super-specialty hospital.
Interacting with his supporters and well-wishers to discuss his future course of his political action here, the veteran leaders said that, “We mustn’t vote for those who have failed in keeping their promises.”
Protesting the inordinate delay in construction of a second bridge over the Brahmani river, establishment of a super-speciality hospital in Rourkela, Ray had quit BJP in November last year. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had promised the two projects.
He also said he will support those who will work for the development of Rourkela.
Notably, former Union Minister Ray and senior BJP leader Bijoy Mohapatra resigned from the party on November 29. Meanwhile, Mohapatra returned to the saffron party.
