B’NGIR CONGRESS DEMANDS NAVEEN IN CBI PROBE
Sunday, 30 November 2014 | PNS | BALANGIR | in Bhubaneswar
Members of the Balangir District Congress Committee led by Bhagban Bagarti, Laxman Meher, Sudhir Parischha, KailashMishra and Biren Mishra on Saturday held a rally here demanding Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik’s inclusion in the CBI’s chit fund inquiry and his resignation.
“While BJD MP Ramchandra Hansda and MLA Pravat Tripathy have been arrested, one of the assistants at the Naveen Nivas Saroj Sahu has been interrogated by the CBI. It reveals that ruling BJD is involved in the chit fund scam. Hence, we demand CM be included in the inquiry and be arrested,” DCC president Bhagaban Bagarti said while addressing partymen at the Collectorate here.
The Congress leaders alleged that the State Government has made concerted efforts not to allow the State Assembly to run properly. “Normally, a State Assembly is adjourned due to ruckus by Opposition members. It is disappointing that the ruling members are creating pandemonium over non-issues and causing adjournments in the Odisha Assembly,” said the agitating Congress leaders.
They further stated that while the West Bengal Government has returned money to small chit fund investors (below Rs 10,000), the Odisha Government is yet to take steps in this regard.
Later, the Congress activists burnt the effigy of the Chief Minister and submitted a memorandum to the Governor through the district Collector seeking dismissal of the Naveen Patnaik Government.
