BHUBANESWAR: Even as differences are growing in the ruling BJD over the issue of CBI notice to Minister of State for Food Supplies and Consumer Welfare Sanjay Dasburma for his alleged links with chit fund scam-tainted company Artha Tatwa Group, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has asked Ministers only to speak on issues concerning their own departments.

BJD spokesperson Sashi Bhusan Behera said the Chief Minister has asked Ministers to only talk on issues concerning their own departments. On other matters, party spokespersons will speak, he said.

The direction from the Chief Minister for the Ministers seems to have come after statements from Excise Minister Damodar Rout and Revenue Minister Bijayshree Routray on Dasburma issue.
