ONI Bureau: Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik shrugged off the controversy surrounding the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO), saying those who don’t have any issues, keep targeting his office and there is nothing new in it.
The CM also said he is busy in development work and has no time for such talks. “People of Odisha are aware of me and my work,” he said. When asked whether there would be any action against Jay Panda, the CM said right decision will be taken at an appropriate time.
Earlier, Kendrapara MP Baijayant Panda and former MLA Rama Ranjan Baliarsingh had issued a scathing attack on 3rd Floor officer close to CM, prompting Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan to claim that Odisha is heading towards a constitutional crisis.
