BJD accuses Jual Oram of election fund irregularities

After Bihar, BJP targets Odisha, seeks CM's scalp

BJD MP from Puri Pinaki Mishra, a Supreme Court lawyer, in a press meet alleged "While Jual Oram had mentioned at one place in the affidavit that his poll expenses are "nil", in the same document he stated some amount has been spent from his own pocket". While explaining the details about it in schedule-9, he mentioned that he had received only Rs 2 lakh (cheque no- 610848) and rest of the amount in cash.

The regional party claimed that there were gross discrepancies in the affidavit on poll expenditure filed by the Union Minister before the Election Commission leaving no room for doubt that it was a false' affidavit.

"BJD will knock the doors of the Election Commission against Jual Oram and he should step down from the Union Ministry of Tribal Affairs on moral grounds", added Mishra.

"Naveen Patnaik never believes in personal attack in politics, but the BJP is stooping low and targeting Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik and disseminating misleading information for its political gains", said Mishra.

The Odisha BJP today sought Governor S C Jamir's intervention in the alleged misuse of official machinery by the BJD government to defend a poll expenditure case against Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik.

BJD's Rajya Sabha MP Pratap Deb also countered the BJP's dubious poll funding allegations and questioned the Union Minister's election expenses.

"We have also apprised the governor about how the government advocates pleaded for BJD's MLA from Hinjili, Naveen Patnaik". BJD spokesperson earlier emphasised the transparency they have maintained and said that the charges brought by the BJP is mere political vendetta against the ruling party.

The BJP has moved the Election Commission of India, Enforcement Directorate and Income Tax department seeking a probe into the BJD's election funding.
