Odisha won’t support BJP’s 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  o l d s t r a t e g y o f politicizing criminal cases. Addrssing 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 criminalcase 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 pr e s ent Pr e sident 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  Od is h a b e a t u p a n d 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 p a n c h a y a t d u r i n g 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.
