Odisha: BJD Reacts To Dharmendra Pradhan’s Corruption Allegations

Bhubaneswar: The Biju Janata Dal today trained guns at the BJP over politicians and criminal ‘assoication’ after Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan leveled allegations that the Odisha Government is being run by mafia and lawmakers in the State are linked in scams.

BJD spokesperson Sulochan Das said, “The BJP should skim through its own unit in Odisha and answer who are the people who eulogise Dhal Samantas or harbour gangsters like Tito.”

She added that serious allegations against BJP leaders in Odisha are pending over a counsillor’s daylight murder in southern Odisha. “Before pointing fingers at the BJD, the Union Minister must clarify on these allegations first,” she added.
