Front of the Coin 

To control the crowed and traffic adequate police personnel were deployed for five days. Many officers including Additional SP were monitoring the law and order situation. 

Back of the Coin 

However, the Ganjam district BJP alleged that while farmers in the district are distressed over crop loss due to untimely rains and pest attacks, some Ministers and officers have connived to collect subscriptions from dishonest millers and are busy in enjoying dance and music. In inviting a press meet the BJP also alleged that the festival has turned into a BJD show. 

During introductory meeting the Organising committee constituted 18 sub-committee. Surprisingly many senior citizens, eminent persons, Media persons were not included. Major resentment noticed that Dr Panigrahy as the Chairman of the Festival committee ignored senior citizens. 

Press people too shown their dissatisfaction with a comment why the Organising committee did so (?). It’s a political festive or District festival (?).The entry pass not distributed properly to the family of press people while VIP pass and Political pass issued plenty in comparison (!). 

Average 30,000 people witnessed the festival for all days.
