Bhubaneswar: BJP leader KV Singh Deo today created a ripple in political circle by claiming that CM Naveen Patnaik was questioned by the CBI in connection with the chit fund scam. Reacting to such allegation, the Chief Minister simply termed it ‘absolute nonsense’.
While citing media report over CBI grilling Naveen, Singh Deo also sought clarification from the CM.
He further alleged that West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee sought support of CM Naveen Patnaik on her future course of action regarding dharna against CBI. Singh Deo said that Mamata is seeking Naveen’s help as he is also involved in the mega scam.
Talking to press persons, Singh Deo wanted to know who Saroj Sahu was and the status of the corpus fund set by Odisha government.
Naveen retorted to KV Singh Deo’s allegations saying “No TMC leader has been in touch with us at least for a year. Our party’s statements yesterday had to do with the events with our own State. Everyone would like CBI to do a professional and non-political job.”
