Biju Janata Dal president Naveen Patnaik on Sunday asked party men to act as agents of transformation to bring cheer among common people as they are central to all programs. Naveen has emphasized that 5T concept (teamwork, technology, transparency, transformation and time limit), already adopted by the government, is equally important for the party to secure the rights of the people.

“Common people are the focus of all our programmes. In order to give common people their rights, our 5T concept is a significant move,” Patnaik said while addressing an extended executive committee meeting of BJD here.”I expect you all to act as agents of transformation and bring cheer and satisfaction in the lives of common people. I want people to see integrity in our approach and actions,” the chief minister said.

Noting that the BJD enjoys the blessings of the 4.5 crore people of Odisha, Patnaik said it has been possible because of the good work done by party workers and leaders. The victory march of BJD in elections was possible because of the sacrifice and hard work of its workers, he said.
