The reality is that an uncalled for replacement of the statue of Utkalmani Pt. Gopabandhu Das with a very ugly looking one is inaugurated by Orissa Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik in the Gopabandhu Bhawan, oblivious of timely intimation to him by the Save the Samaja Forum that, as the chief political executive of the State, he should not associate himself with the mischief that can be termed as a sacrilege. But he did not heed.
The preening prince of Bijudom, who has captured the CM chair as the son only of a man, who despite his himalayan misdeeds, had a great support base of sycophants in Orissa’s powerful segment of political opportunists, could not collect intelligence and fell a prey to machinations that the illegal occupiers of the Samaja, in nexus with his staff in the CMO, had prepared.
This ugly reality demands an answer from the Chief Minister as to why did he partner with this mischief? What was the necessity of replacing a beautiful statue of Utkalmani with an ugly looking statue?
Many people in Orissa are emotional fans of Utkalmani. They are very very injured by the CM’s mindless collaborations with a gang against whom criminal charges are leveled on the basis of investigation reports and by top brasses of the organization.
But why the CM so mindlessly collaborated with the gang that committed the sacrilege? This question is directly asked to the Chief Minister. Let him not shy at it.
