not given any benefit to the 11 lakh BPL additional BPL
families which it added to the existing BPL least last year.
His protest came when Munda announced that another
survey of BPL families would take place in the second week of
"You can`t dictate a CM," Munda retorted as an annoyed
Tripathy walked off the stage in protest.
