BJP engaged in wiping out the evidences of illegal land grabbing

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

A tiny facet of misrule and loot of the State going on in Naveen Patnaik’s administration has just been spotted at Gangapatna in the outskirt of mainstream Bhubaneswar, where around a hundred acres of forestland reduced by timber mafia to minor forest, has been grabbed by close collaborators of the Chief Minister, one of whom suspected is his blue-eyed boy Kalpataru Das, sent by him to Rajya Sabha oblivious of many worthy aspirants. Das has a nasty trail of dishonesty and is considered a black sheep by many of his colleagues in the ruling BJD.
Chief Minister’s blue-eyed boy and his collaborators in administration are so deeply linked to this design to grab the hundred acres that the land not only has a surrounding wall erected in contravention of Forrest Laws to give it a glow of exclusivity, but also a road has been built in the offenders’ service.

The Chief Minister’s total silence in the matter, when the whole of the State is in fire over this glimpse of offence, has made the situation more serious than corruption that the Naveen brand of administration stand synonym to.

But the conduct of BJP in this matter makes it more complicated. As the pictures below would show, BJP musclemen have all on a sudden become extremely active to remove the speaking evidences of the crime in a clever manner. They have razed down the compound wall illegally erected around the grabbed patch of land and also have started wiping out the illegally built road thereto.

Why the BJP has tried to wipe out the evidences of illegal constructions of compound wall and approach road concerning the 100 acres in question, is a question its state president K.V.Singhdeo may answer in interest of probity, if he or his party has the slightest regard for probity in public life.

  1. The last paragraph reminds me of ………………….. or in other words ::::::::::::: could it be as they say, ” when asked, who is in the temple…. PAT comes the answer I HAVEN’T EATEN THE BANANAS “.

    Great shame on the 14 yr rule/misrule …………… but then WHY worry ??? WHEN 6500 acrs so far to Anil and ~3000 acrs on golden platters to POSCO too etc. Mind it AND don’t forget the recent exposure…. of thousands of acres of land in the guise of industrial purpose to blue eyed boys of local and other state brown BOYS ……….. who cashed in many many thousands of croes of Rupees in return of Bank Mortgage and ending up with NO INDUSTRIES in Orissa.

    So, few acres and may be 100 acres or a housing plot here -n-there to our own Das/Tihadi/Jena/Misra/Pattanaik and the likes; why worry at all pl. !!!
