Is BJP genuinely interested to take up corruption charges against Nabin Patnaik-led BJD Govt. or just want to create political hiccups in Odisha
On the eve of visit of Prime Minister to address public meeting in Odisha, BJP top brass has released a list of 36 corruption charges against Nabin Patnaik Govt., most corrupt Govt. in history of Odisha. As we see since last several years, BJP has not taken up a single corruption issue of Nabin Patnaik and organised massive campaign against any corruption issue in the state despite being aware about involvement of this Govt. in many scams. Rather , BJP has tried its best to protect scamster Nabin and nexus of BJP central leadership and Nabin is quite known to every body in political circle. Without disturbing Nabin , BJP has tried to garner his support for its political interest starting from support for presidential election to demonetisation. In the name of maintaining policy of equi-distance, Nabin has tried its best to help BJP at centre. BJP in the state is still in the state of confusion and disillusionment to fight out aggressively against BJD. That’s why BJP has not yet been able to take on Nabin on any corruption issue in the state.
CBI inquiry into chit fund scam has been derailed due to unholy alliance of BJP central leadership and Nabin. Despite recommendation of Justice Shah Commission, CBI inquiry into mining scam, multi-crore scam, biggest scam in history of Odisha was not yet happened due to BJP. The Central Govt. has not yet filed any affidavit in Supreme Court for CBI inquiry into Odisha Mining Scam. Similarly , being pretty aware about illegal SIET closure and OKCL Ghotala and misappropriation of crores of central fund for computer education, BJP leadership remained silence and precariously failed to influence central Minister for HRD for inquiry into it. BJP has also failed to take micro corruption issues of thousand crores scam like NREGA SCAM, Chhatua Ghotala, irregularities in distribution of houses under IAY, PMAY and Biju Pucca Yojana, infamous land scam in Bhubaneswar, Cuttack, Dal Scam, OMFED SCAM, Corruption in Odisha State Cooperative Bank etc.
Sri Jual Oram, Minister for Tribals has not conducted a single inquiry into central fund hugely misappropriated and diverted by BJD govt. Sri Oram has tried to protect another scamster and land Mafia, Rajya Sabha MP of BJD Sri Achyuta Samant and continues granting huge fund to KIIT and KISS. BJP leadership enjoys close proximity of corrupt leaders of BJD and their henchmen like Achyut Samant.
BJP’s so-called corruption charges against BJD is limited to only press meet and media highlight. We do not see any concrete campaign strategy to fight out corruption issue at micro and macro level. That’s why BJP has not succeeded to put the Govt. in trouble on a single corruption charge , though there are number of corruption cases has been exposed under RTI which BJP leadership is aware about it.
The political behaviour and language of BJD and BJP are same and both the parties are pretending as messiah of the cause of the people but in true sense they support each other and contribute each other in their corrupt practice .
