Pamphlets with graft charges against BJD’s LS candidate distributed in Kandhamal

Phulbani: The ‘Soochana Adhikar Abhiyan’, an RTI outfit in the district has launched a protest campaign alleging involvement of State government and ruling-BJD’s Kandhamal Lok Sabha constituency candidate Achyuta Samanta in corruption and irregularities.

RTI activists led by state convenor of the outfit Pradip Pradhan have been campaigning against the party and its candidate by distributing pamphlets purportedly containing data on involvement of Samanta and BJD government in irregularities and corruption.

“Our main aim is to make people aware about how the Naveen Patnaik-led government has looted the State. We have published a document which exposes all kinds of corruption done by BJD Lok Sabha candidate Achyuta Samanta and have launched an awareness programme by distributing the document so that people know about it and vote for the right person,” said Pradhan.

However, no comments could be obtained from the State government or Achyuta Samanta in connection with the matter.
