Bhubaneswar: The State BJP today dragged chief minister Naveen Patnaik into the missing and recovery of Ratna Bhandar key.
At a press meet, BJP spokesperson Pitambar Acharya said “As per the Sri Jagannath temple act, there is a Foundation Fund Committee of Srimandir which is headed by Chief Minister Himself. But, how many times the CM has called the committee meeting in his last 18 years tenure? Acharya asked, demanding clarification from the CM on the matter.
The CM is accountable on any affaires regarding the committee. It is coming under the purview of criminal and anti corruption law. “So, we will soon knock the doors of vigilance court. We will file a petition seeking investigation by an impartial national agency like CBI,” Acharya added.
