Bhubaneswar, Jan 12: Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik said that the state has made extensive arrangement for mega vaccination drive for COVID-19, starting from January 16, in all the 162 identified sites.
Patnaik said, “162 vaccination sites have been identified across districts and necessary infrastructure has been established for this purpose.”
Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik did not attend the swearing-in of HD Kumaraswamy as the chief minister of Karnataka today as the BJD maintains an equal distance from the Congress and the BJP, a party leader said. Patnaik, who is the BJD president, did not attend the swearing-in in Bengaluru that was held on Wednesday.
West Bengal is not the only state to have been hit by scams. There is Odisha as well and it is not as though the magnitude of the scams here are any less. Then why is Mamta Banerjee in the news and not Naveen Patnaik? The answer is a simple one. Patnaik is clear that law will take its course and the guilty punished. Whereas Mamata Banerjee on the other hand has refused to acknowledge a problem and wants laws changed instead on the pretext that the Central government is hatching a conspiracy against her.
