He added that the people from Tamil Nadu are getting mining, infrastructure contracts and jobs in Odisha. He advised Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik to contest elections from Tamil Nadu instead of Odisha.

Amit Shah assured to make public the report of the commission set up to probe into the missing keys of Ratna Bhandar (treasury of Shree Jagannath Temple at Puri) within 100 days of coming to power and also promised to open all the doors of the Jagannath temple.

He also assured to put behind bars the guilty persons involved in the multi-crore Chit Fund scam within 18 months after the formation of the BJP government in Odisha.
