Stating that the BJD government had prepared many vision documents and made many false promises since it came to power in 2000, Leader of Opposition Narasingha Mishra said Patnaik’s announcement was aimed at hoodwinking people and gaining political mileage.The BJD government has failed to create any vision document so far, and the BJD will cease to exist by 2026, said K.V.Singh Deo, president of Odisha BJP.The BJD has been alleging Central neglect to hide the failures of its government over the past 15 years, Singh Deo added.
