Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

The thirteenth Orissa Legislative Assembly wound up its active life on February 14 as its last and the 16th session ended with the Government shying at debates over the Chief Minister’s black money exposed by his cabinet colleagues, Samir Dey (as he then was) and Golak Bihari Nayak and escaping audit objections over revenue loss of at least Rs. 1242 crore due to malfeasance unveiled in sample instances tested by the Comptroller and Auditor general during the last financial year.

The House however adopted the vote-on-account to keep expenditures fueled till the next government takes over.
