Pyari Mohan Slams CM Naveen


Bhubaneswar: Member of Rajya Sabha and Odisha Jana Morcha (OJM) supremo Pyari Mohan Mohapatra on Saturday took a dig at Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik for not learning Odia language in the last 16 years.

“I am shocked that he has not show any interest for taking in the Odia. In what manner would you be able to control a State without knowing the language of the land?” asked the offended mentor of Patnaik.

Making a sarcastic comment on Naveen, the parliamentarian stated, “The CM didn’t learn the language despite being given two books in 2000.Had he evinced the slightest interest, he would have learnt the language by this time,” Mohapatra said.

The comments of the OJM leader came in the wake of the arrest of some Congress leaders, who tried to sneak into Naveen Nivas this morning with some teaching materials in their hands in an attempt to teach the CM Odia language.
