ONI Bureau: While continuing with his tirade against the Senior IAS officers close to CM Naveen Patnaik as we all other officers in his constituency, Kendrapara MP Baijayant Panda has lashed out at them, saying they must stop meddling in party’s affairs.
While inaugurating the overhead water tank project at Buhalo in Nischintakoili block of Cuttack district today, Jay Panda said he respects the officers who behave well and discarge the duties.
“I don’t respect the officers who cross the ‘Laxman Rekha’ and join political affairs while being Government Servants. Even Biju Babu had once said how to pay “respect” to such officers,” said Panda reminding the officers of ‘Mada Tattwa’ promoted by late Biju Patnaik.
It can be recalled during his tenure as CM, Biju Patnaik had invented the term ‘Mada Tattwa’ and asked people to beat up government officials if they fail to listen to them and deliver good governance.
