BHAWANIPATNA: Demanding CBI probe, State Secretariat member of CPM, Ali Kishore Pattnaik said involvement of politicians in mining and chit fund scams in the State should be brought to the limelight.
Addressing mediapersons here on Saturday, Pattnaik said according to CAG reports, financial irregularities have been found in 38 departments and 17 public sector undertakings (PSUs) of the State Government. “The current BJD Government has surpassed all the past corruptions. The Government is hand in gloves with persons accused in chit fund and mining scams,” he alleged. Failure of Crime Branch and Vigilance in solving several cases has been proved and the only solution to unearth the truth is the CBI, he said.
Apparently, the State unit of CPM has launched a public awareness campaign on these scams since September 5 and it will continue till 15th.
Protests will be stepped up if the Government fails to take any action against the corrupt politicians, he added.
District secretary of CPM, Naba Kishore Pattnaik, and district committee member Biswajit Chatterji, highlighted several problems ailing the region.
Issues like establishment of an agriculture university in Kalahandi and revival of the medical college at Jaring that failed to get the nod from the Medical Council of India due to lack of infrastructure and early establishment of the proposed rail wagon factory at Narla were also discussed in the meet.
