The BJP on Saturday alleged that the BJD is unnecessarily misleading people by opposing use of Hindi by the AIIMS, Bhubaneswar.
“The order issued by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare has not asked to stop use of Odia.
Doctors and nurses will talk to patients in Odia.
No restriction has been made in this regard.
The BJD is unnecessarily misleading people baselessly,” said senior BJP leader Kharabela Swain.
Swain alleged that the BJD doesn’t want use of English lessened.
Its (BJD’s) protest against use of Hindu in official work has proved this, he said.
He wanted to know why the BJD is so companionate to English.
Stating that MBBS and Nursing students are being taught in Odia at the AIIMS, Swain demanded that the State
Government and the BJD make it clear in which language officials letters being written by the SCB Medical College Hospital, Cuttack, MKCG MCH, Brarhmapur and VIMSAR, Burla.
