PURI:  Hundreds of Congress activists, led by party leader  Biswanath Dash, staged a demonstration at the Lion’s Gate of Jagannath Temple demanding resignation of Food Supplies and Consumer Welfare Minister Sanjay Dasburma for his alleged links with Artha Tatwa chit fund company and the Pajero vehicle issue. They also burnt the effigy of Dasburma.

Former OPCC general secretary Priyadarshan Patnaik demanded that the CBI should question the Minister and probe into his involvement in running several companies.

Congress activists also demanded President’s rule in the State as Naveen Patnaik Government failed in all aspects of fulfilling the promises made to the people.
