Bhubaneswar: A day after BJD MP Baijayant Panda, who has been sidelined by the party leadership, targeted officers close to Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik and asked them to remain within the “laxman rekha,” Patnaik today said that the allegation is nothing new.
“When they have no other issues, they target my office and this is nothing new. I am busy with development works of the State and people are well aware of what is going on,” said Patnaik, who is also the BJD president.
To queries whether he would seek explanation from Panda, Patnaik said whatever appropriate will be done.
Though Panda did not name the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO), but the MP’s office had alleged that an officer of the third floor (CMO), was behind the trouble in Mahanga where the MP inaugurated a water supply project.
Panda while inaugurating the water tank project at Buhalo panchayat in Mahanga area in his Kendrapara Lok Sabha constituency, even went on saying that, “When an officer forgets the service code, crosses the ‘laxman rekha’, involves himself in politics, interfere in party affairs and gives shelter to those involved in the anti-people activities, one will have no respect such officer.”
