BJD hit back at the BJP over the dubious poll funding row

Bhubaneswar:29/8/17; The Biju Janata Dal (BJD) today hit back at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) over the dubious poll funding row and dubbed the latter as a party with a tendency to politicise each and every issue.

Speaking to media persons, a day after the Supreme Court (SC) issued notices to BJD supremo and Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik and others in connection with alleged discrepancies in poll funding, BJD’s Rajya Sabha member Pratap Deb said the government has already cleared its stand on the issue and there is nothing to hide. The apex court yesterday issued notices to CM Naveen, State Election Commission (SEC), the district collector of Ganjam and the district electoral officer while hearing the petition filed by Subash Mohapatra seeking transfer of the dubious poll funding case to Delhi High Court. The SC has sought reply within three weeks.
