Bhubaneswar: Politics has taken centre stage in Odisha after alleged links of fraudster Golden Baba alias Jyotiranjan Beura with BJD leaders came to fore. Several pictures of the conman golden baba with senior BJD men are doing rounds on social media.
In this context, the student wing of Odisha Congress has targeted the ruling party. Student Congress president Itish Pradhan dragged Bhubaneswar Mayor Anant Narayan Jena, BJD leader Rajendra Shoo and MLA Debi Mishra into the controversy. Alleging their associations with the fraudster, Pradhan has demanded a high level inquiry.
After the links of BJD politicians and conman came to limelight, police action against the BJD leaders has become a matter of question.
It is said that the Mayor has been in a good relationship with the Golden Baba, which virtually pushed the first citizen of Bhubaneswar into trouble. Political experts opined that the matter would be very sensitive if the links of Mayor with the conman is proved.
BJP has also demanded a high level probe to find out the leaders’ relations with fraudster.
Golden Baba, who has been arrested by Commissionerate police few days ago, is facing various cases which are pending in different police stations.
