The Governor of Orissa Sri Muralidhar Chandrakant Bhandare is President of the Orissa unit of St. John Ambulance. But he is allegedly sleeping over charges of corruption in its management despite the charges having repeatedly been brought to his notice during discussions with its life members.
A group of life members have jointly expressed shock over the Governor’s negligence to charges against the Secretary, Sri P.C.Mohanty for years as a result of which the institution has become an institute of machinations and has dwindled into a grazing ground of dishonest fellows.
“Kindly recall our discussions with your good self in a number of meetings at Rajbhawan, Bhubaneswar in which we had requested several times in last two years for replacement of the present Hony. Secretary Sri C.P.Mohanty”, the signatory life members have told Mr.Bhandare on July 3, 2010.
In this communication they have confronted the Governor with how he had assured them replace the Secretary, but how he has failed.
“We strongly feel that there is probably some influential person at Rajbhawan who is shielding Sri Mohanty” they had said.
Dr. Sujit kumar Panda, Pradipta kumar Moharana, Rajkishore Ppatnaik, Kamaksya Prasad Kar, Subash Chandra Bose, Laxman Panda and Sunil kumar Pradhan etc have signed the communication.
