Opposition seeks probe into BJD’s dubious transaction


  • BJP, Congress alleged BJD received fund from dubious sources during 2014 elections
  • BJP threatens to move ECI, ED and IT department

Bhubaneswar: The Opposition Congress and BJP on Saturday demanded an inquiry into the alleged dubious transaction in the account of ruling BJD during 2014 general and Assembly elections in the state.

Both the parties alleged that BJD received funds in the party account during the last general election in 2014 came from suspicious sources.

Holding a press conference at BJP office here, its vice-president Sameer Mohanty said the ruling party has received money through dubious sources during the last general elections.

The party will knock the doors of Election Commission of India (ECI), Enforcement Directorate (ED) and Income Tax department for a detailed investigation into such irregularities. – BJP Vice-President Sameer Mohanty

Joining in the chorus, Congress chief whip Tara Prasad Bahinipati demanded a CBI investigation into the entire financial transaction of BJD.

On the other hand, BJD rubbished the allegation.

BJP is trying to defame BJD. All allegations levelled against our party are grossly baseless. We have made all our transactions in a transparent manner. – BJD Treasurer Subash Singh
