Dama Rout attacks Arun Sahoo, alleges his hand in Chhabi Bardhan murder

Nayagarh: Continuing his tirade on the leaders of the ruling BJD, senior leader Damodar Rout today pointed fingers at Nayagarh MLA Arun Sahoo. He linked the name of the legislator to two-three murder cases including Chhabi Bardhan murder in 2006.

The body of Bardhan was found from Sahoo’s residence in the Unit-6 area of the State capital.

Rout alleged that the former Law Minister was also involved in corruption cases apart from these murder cases.

“The death of Nayagarh king is still shrouded in mystery. Moreover, his wife and well wishers are denied permission to establish the statue of the king,” said Rout.

The senior leader claimed that with his help, Sahoo came into politics in 2003 and now the Nayagarh MLA is interfering into all matters of the State government ranging from Biju Pucca Ghar Yojana to Pani Panchayat.

Speaking on the sidelines of a function organised by the Praja Andolan and Soochana Adhikar Abhiyan in Nayagarh, Rout said in coming days he will reveal the actual image of Arun Sahoo.

However, comments from Arun Sahoo could not be obtained despite repeated efforts.
