Naveen Patnaik, Odisha Chief Minister



Hitting out at Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik for alleged cover up bid in land scam, today demanded a CBI probe into allotment of land and houses as role of political leaders had now surfaced during inquiry into chit fund scandal by the central agency.

"The state government should hand over probe into irregularities in land allotment to CBI on its own in order to unravel the role of political leaders and land mafia," senior BJP leader told reporters here.

Mounting a scathing attack on the Chief Minister, he claimed the state government had rejected the demand for a CBI probe into chit fund scam a year ago claiming that crime branch police was inquiring into the matter properly.

However, involvement of political leaders in chit fund scam is now coming to fore during being conducted into the scandal following Supreme Court order, Mohapatra said. "The Chief Minister remained silent in chit fund scam and now in land scam. While opposition to CBI probe into chit fund scam did not succeed, will also meet with the same fate," the BJP leader said. Slamming the Chief Minister for being silent on involvement his party colleagues in land scam, he said while the Accountant General mentioned party leaders including ministers in his report, Patnaik failed to take any action.

Claiming that the AG report has blurred the image of Patnaik, he alleged the chief minister tried to suppress the report from March 2012 and did not comply with many queries or supply information despite repeated reminders.
