BHUBANESWAR: More skeletons are tumbling out of cupboard of Biju Janata Dal’s fund collection during 2014 elections that could put the ruling party in trouble.
An investigation by Update Odisha revealed that the members of one family have donated Rs 12.96 lakh to BJD account during elections. Surprisingly, Sabyasachi Panda, the man who donated Rs one lakh to BJD, is also a partner with a company managed by one of the family members.
We have already published the entities who have donated funds to BJD account during elections year 2014-15.
Sabyasachi Panda and Subash Moharana (both from Ganjam district) are partners of a company Allied Infra Supplier. While Panda, who donated Rs 1 lakh to BJD account, had only a few thousands of rupees transaction throughout the year. Subash donated Rs 5 lakh to the same BJD account.
Panda and his business associate also have another company named SSGS Transports Private Ltd.
Then it comes to Santosh Moharana, the brother of Subash. Santosh donated Rs 1.99 lakh to the ruling party account and his wife Monalisa Parija also donated the same amount. Penta A Studio Private Ltd Company located in Cuttack, in which Subash, Santosh, and Monalisa are directors, also gave Rs 1.99 lakh.
Interestingly, the trio has given different addresses of their residence. While Subash had given his home address at Ekamra Nagar in Chhatrapur, Santosh at N1/91 IRC Village, Nayapalli in Bhubaneswar and Monalisa at Manorama Estate, Rasulgarh.
More interestingly, when Update Odisha dug deeper into the BJD’s fund collection during the election year in 2014, it was found that two other persons- Rabi Narayan Parija and Partha Sarathi Parija had donated Rs 99,500 each (which also sums to 1.99 lakh). Both the individuals shared same address of correspondence at Gopalpur, Cuttack.
Surprisingly, both have blood relation with Monalisa Parija. While Rabi Narayan Parija is the father of Monalisa, Partha Sarathi Parija is her brother.
The donations from a single family and their associated companies from different accounts raise suspicion that “Daal Mein Kuch Kala Hai” (there is something fishy).
