Ranchi: A Jharkhand Hindi daily kicked
up a controversy on Monday by publishing a report that the BJP
office had allegedly flouted designs and that a shop was
functioning in the premises which had no parking space.

Seizing upon this, Union Tourism Minister Subodh Kant
Sahay alleged that the BJP-led government was trying to give
legal cover to its party office through an ordinance.

"On one hand the government is trying to legalise the
BJP office which has also flouted RRDA (Ranchi Rural
Development Authority) rules, while on the other hand it has
uprooted dwellings of the poor in the garb of an
anti-encroachment drive," Sahay told a press conference here.

"The government should immediately rehabilitate the
families living under the open sky," Sahay said.

Rejecting the allegations, BJP’s state unit President
Dineshanand Goswami told a hurriedly convened press conference
that the party office was situated in the premises of the
`Antyodaya Foundation Trust`, which was a non-commercial
structure having neither a basement nor a shop.

"We also have parking space," Goswami clarified.
