BJP Govt. In Action Mood: Srimandir Opens All Four Gates

Bhubaneswar: June 14: The Odisha BJP Government has commenced its tenure with a resolute stance, conveying a distinct message to the state that it will earnestly prioritize the progress of both the state and its inhabitants. Immediately following the oath-taking ceremony, they convened a Cabinet meeting to make several decisions by the promises outlined in their election manifesto.

The inaugural cabinet meeting of the BJP government, led by Chief Minister Mohan Charan Majhi, made four significant decisions. These decisions encompassed the unlocking of all four entrances of the Shree Jagannath Temple in Puri, starting from the day after the government’s swearing-in ceremony on June 13th. This move aims to ensure unrestricted access for devotees to the temple, allowing them to have a smooth and uninterrupted view of the Trinity.

Consequently, the four entrances of Shree Jagannath Temple were unlocked in the presence of Chief Minister Majhi, Deputy Chief Ministers KV Singhdeo and Prabhati Parida, Ministers, and other dignitaries. So far, access to the devotees was limited to the eastern gate, also known as Simhadwara. Following the Covid epidemic, limitations were enforced. This was a significant campaign issue for the BJP in the recently finished elections. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Minister Amit Shah, and JP Nadda all pledged to unlock all four gates and promptly undertake a comprehensive assessment of the valuables housed in Ratna Bhandar, the temple’s treasury.

Majhi stated that the state cabinet has also resolved to establish a fund of Rs.500 crore for the preservation, repair, reconstruction, and administration of the shrine.

The Chief Minister further announced that the cabinet has approved the proposal to raise the minimum support price (MSP) of paddy to Rs.3,100 per quintal. The Chief Minister has instructed the agriculture department to create comprehensive guidelines and a detailed action plan for a forward-thinking agriculture strategy. These documents must be completed within the next 100 days and submitted to the government for review and approval.

The cabinet has approved the implementation of the Subhadra Yojana. This program entails providing a cash voucher worth Rs.50,000 to each female beneficiary, which can be redeemed within two years.

The swift move demonstrates that the youthful ministry, led by Chief Minister Mohan Charan Majhi, is committed to achieving a better Odisha shortly through diligent efforts and strategic planning, as they have envisioned. Prime Minister Modi has expressed his belief that Odisha will achieve the top position among all states during the next five years.
