Bhubaneswar, Oct 31:
Launching a scathing attack on the BJD government for its failure in all counts, the Odisha BJP today said the party would ensure all culprits involved in chit fund and mining scams in the state are put behind the bar.
“We would step up our campaign against corruption. The persons involved in chit fund and mining scams in Odisha will not be allowed to go scot free at any cost,” said BJP national spokesperson Sambit Patra at a press conference here.
Stating that the national BJP fully supports the issues raised by the state BJP, Patra said while the CBI is already investigating into the chit fund scam, the demand of state BJP for a thorough probe into the mining scam would be backed effectively at the national level.
“The party would ensure that the persons involved in the mining scam are taken to task. We will take it to the national level,” said the BJP leader.
Informing that the remote areas of the state are yet to see any developmental activities under the Naveen Patnaik government, he said the government has failed to initiate any development work for the people of the state and failed to meet their aspirations.
Patra also hoped that the BJP, which is performing well in the state, would do better in the coming days and strengthen its base.
