Bhubaneswar: Dubbing the BJD government in Odisha as anti-poor, anti-farmer and inefficient, the BJP on Wednesday said it has no understanding with the BJD to get its support in the Rajya Sabha and slow down CBI probe into the chitfund scam in return.
"There is no question of having an understanding with the BJD as the Naveen Patnaik government has failed on all fronts due to its inefficiency and anti-poor and anti-farmer policies," BJP Odisha in-charge Arun Singh told reporters here.
"So far as Rajya Sabha is concerned, there are certain issues and bills for which the BJP has sought the cooperation of all political parties including the BJD," Singh said, adding, if bills like the one on land acquisition were passed, the states would be benefitted considerably.
Stating that the BJD government was marked by scams and scandals, the BJP leader said CBI was an independent agency and it was investigating the chitfund scam in Odisha without any interference.
"We strongly believe that all those who looted poor people's hard earned money through the chitfund scam in Odisha as well as in West Bengal, will be booked," Singh said responding to allegations that the CBI probe into the chitfund scam is slowing down.
