He said Odisha-resident Muktikant Biswal walked 1,350 kilometre to Delhi to remind Prime Minister Modi of his poll promise.

“The PM promised Rourkela a multi speciality hospital three years ago. Now, Muktikant Biswal has walked 1,300 kilometre to Delhi because the PM hasn't kept his promise and people are dying.
