Investors in chit funds deserve to get back their money and the Pradesh Congress will take all steps to ensure the recovery, asserts its new President, Jaydev Jena.
In a press release he has said that the Congress Party will never tolerate the conspiracy hatched by Naveen Patnaik led BJD Government to suppress the mega chit fund scam. The state Congress will continue its agitational programs till the last depositor get their money back, he has said.
According to the press note, the Congress will extend co-operation to all the depositors, who would want legal aid to fight in the court of law. For the purpose, the PCC is organizing to open helpline desk from block level to state level consisting of block President and one lawyer at block level, district President and two lawyers at district level and two senior leaders and three senior lawyers at the state level. These cells will be constituted to provide legal assistance free of cost to the affected people, who have filled FIR or taken the shelter of court of law.
Coming heavily down upon the CM for his unwillingness for a CBI inquiry into the chit fund fraud, Jena has attributed this reluctance to involvement of his ministers and party MLAs, MPs in the offense.
There has been the network of 95 chit fund companies out of which 25 ones like Seashore, Arthatatwa, Sharada, Astha, Green Ray etc are prominent. The crime branch has enquired into their spread and spotted the culprits; but is not revealing the names of depositors and investors under off the record directions of the Chief Minister, he has alleged.
Shri Jena has demanded release of white paper on the chit fund fraud by the Government forthwith.
