The Founder of Bhasha Andolan, Orissa Sri Subhas Chandra Pattanayak has urged the State Governor to free himself from the evident fraud in the amendment of the Orissa Official Language Act, 1954. He had submitted details of the fraudulence to the Governor on 6.5.2022 requesting him to please use his inherent power to recall his assent to the amendments of the Act, “as they were created by forgery, treachery, and fraudulence as well as in absolute contravention of the Rules of Business.”
The Governor’s Secretariate run by Govt. Staff has sent the same to Principal Secretary to Govt. in the department of GA&PG on 24.5.2022 VIDE No.3642, with an instruction “for taking needful action” at his end and intimate Sri Pattanayak the “action taken report”. This particular Officer is a party to the alleged fraud and he has not yet carried out the order of the Governor.
On this background, Sri Pattanayak has addressed another letter to the Governor urging him to apply his mind to the issue and “to ensure that Orissa is not administered under fake and fraudulently made legislation.
