Odisha Will Continue to Reject BJP’s Old Strategy of Politicizing Criminal Cases: BJD

New Delhi: The Biju Janata Dal on Sunday came down heavily on the Odisha unit of BJP stating that the people of Odisha will continue to reject the Odisha BJP’s old strategy of politicizing criminal cases.

Addressing a press meet here, BJD MP and national spokesperson Dr. Sasmit Patra said that Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan talking about law-and-order today in a press interaction is hilarious. In BJP ruled states there have been very sensational cases whether it is liquor tragedy or bridge collapse leading to deaths of many people and also crimes against women. People demanded Judicial enquiry but in most cases it was never done, the BJD MP said.

Dr. Patra further said that your only intention is to politicise every criminal case and create political narrative. State is transparent and has given this case to be monitored by a High Court Judge nominated by the Orissa High Court. What’s there to hide for us? You took High Court’s name several times this morning in your statement but you doubt the monitoring by a High Court Judge? Why? Only to score political points? All the cases mentioned by you this morning are in respective courts.

“You should have faith at least in the Judiciary and you should allow Courts to deliver Justice as per them and not instil doubts and questions on them. Isn’t a senior BJP leader who has 14 criminal cases including murder case has been appointed as Leader of Opposition in Odisha Assembly by you? Wasn’t he in jail and is now out on bail on Dileshwar Sahu murder case which took place during Bijepur by-poll? You place such people as your Leader of Opposition but you have the moral fibre to question the Odisha Government? You should be teaching us morality? Wasn’t your present President of Bharatiya Janata Party Yuva Morcha in jail and now out on bail in Bhatli murder incident?” the BJD MP asked.

Dr. Patra further said that, isn’t it a shame that your own Central Minister from Odisha beat up and fractured the hand of Government Officers in Mayurbhanj, is presently on bail? You did politics over that unfortunate Koraput case and your party even also lost that gram panchayat during election. People see through BJP strategy of politicising criminal cases for your own political gains and in most cases siding with the criminals. People of Odisha know who is doing what and how is the law-and-order situation in Odisha. By trying to mislead the people of Odisha, you will not succeed, the BJD MP added.
