Bhubaneswar:22/10/20: The Odisha Lokayukta has issued a notice to six persons including a legislator of the ruling-BJD in connection with a complaint filed by an RTI activist wherein serious allegations have been made regarding the destruction of irrigation embankment from Gokarneswar to Budhalinga Majhipada road in Jajpur district during floods that led to the inundation of thousands of acres of farmland.
Beura further alleged that the damage was because of the conspiracy by the MLA and not due to floods. Such a step was taken to cover up corruption and substandard work, he alleged.
Based on the allegations made, the Lokayukta has served a notice seeking a reply within 6 weeks. The RTI activist has also been asked to appear in person during the next hearing, scheduled on December 3.
