Puri: Sharing the success mantra with leaders and party workers of Biju Janata Dal (BJD) on the occasion of its 20th foundation day celebration at Talabania here today, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik advised them to serve people with simplicity to win their hearts and trust.
Starting his speech before a huge crowd at the venue by chanting ‘Jay Jagannath’ Naveen claimed that his two-decade-old party has transformed into a ‘social revolution’ and expressed commitment towards serving the people of Odisha. He didn’t forget to thank all Odias for reposing faith on him again and again.
“Simple living and high thinking should be our policy as it connects to the masses and holds paramount importance in public life,”, said CM.
“The former President of India Dr APJ Abdul Kalam had said truth and simplicity are self-maintained without any cost. Hence, I wish that you should all live a simple life and serve people with a sympathetic attitude,” he added.
Naveen also remembered Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi, Utkal Gourav Madhusudhan Das and Utkalmani Gopabandhu Das on the occasion and said they have touched people’s heart by self-less service and self-sacrifice. He advised all to follow the footprint of these three great men.
Dubbing people as their masters, the BJD supremo appealed party leaders and workers to keep all promises made by them during poll campaign, at any cost.
