odisha chief Minister Rubbishes Chit Fund Charge, Says It “Absolute Nonsense”

Bhubaneswar  :5/2/19 :The State unit of Bharatiya Janata Party on Tuesday kicked up a political storm by levelling allegation of Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik being quizzed by Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in connection with the multi-crore chit fund scam.

Patnaik however tore apart the charge with his characteristic one-liner statement “absolute nonsense”.

The BJD supremo Patnaik rubbished the BJP claim by saying that the investigating agency needs to act as a professional unit and needs to work above politics.

Reacting to West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s statement that she would talk her Odisha counterpart at the backdrop of faceoff with CBI, Patnaik said “none from TMC has been in touch with us for the last one year. We would like CBI to do a professional and non-political job”, he said.

There are reports of Patnaik being quizzed by the premier investigating agency. CBI has recently issued notice to two BJD MLAs and former ministers in connection with a chitfund case. Both the MLAs have said they will respond to the CBI notice. The Chief Minister who claims probity and transparency has come under cloud of suspicion, Leader of BJP legislature party KV Singhdeo had earlier claimed.
