Raising the issue in the house of Odisha assembly, Mishra sought a reply from chief minister Naveen Patnaik.

Rs 8 crore had been transferred to an SBI account of BJD.

“The chief minister should clarify whether BJD has received Rs 8 crore from Purnachandra Padhi and Srikrushnachandra Padhi, who are accused in the chit fund scam. He should also clarify whether both were associated with Artha Tatwa group,” asked Mishra.

He said the chit fund accused are in jail for their involvement in the multi-crore scam.
