Former MP Baijayant Panda criticises BJP, Congress for ‘ignoring’ Odisha

Kendrapara/Dhenkanal: Former Kendrapara MP Baijayant ‘Jay’ Panda criticised the Congress and the BJP today saying that both the national parties have failed to raise their voices against rising violence and corruption in Odisha.

Panda’s comments came during his visit to Talabarkote in Dhenkanal. The former MP alleged that the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has only taken action in West Bengal in the chit fund scam, but in Odisha the agency has not done anything noticeable. He added that even if the parties have raised their voices lately, they are not taking any steps.

“Both the national parties have done injustice towards Odisha. The CBI has not taken any action against those who are involved in chit fund scam in Odisha. Many families of Odisha have lost huge amount of money,” Panda said.

Speaking about his future course of action, Panda said he will soon take a decision. The former MP also visited Kendrapara to take part in different programmes.
