obc survey in odisha online|obc survey portal:The opposition has accused the Naveen Patnaik government in Odisha of opportunism after a survey to assess the socioeconomic status of Other Backward Classes (OBCs) began earlier this week. Odisha is the second state in the country, after Bihar, to undertake such an exercise but opposition parties have questioned the intent of the Patnaik government, saying the move is intended to win the support of the OBCs ahead of the 2024 assembly and Lok Sabha elections.
Look at the timing of the survey. All these years they [the Patnaik government] have been shedding crocodile tears for the OBCs. Now with the elections barely a year away, they have launched this exercise to create an impression that they actually care for this class. The ruling party is trying to play the caste card but they will not succeed. People will see through their game,” said former Congress MLA Lalatendu Mohapatra.

Also, the social and educational conditions of 208 OBC communities enlisted by the state government will be collected during the survey, which will be followed by a special drive to ensure that none were left out across the state.
