BHUBANESWAR: Union  Minister of State for Petroleum and Natural Gas Dharmendra Pradhan on Wednesday asked Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik to release the list of beneficiaries under rural housing schemes.


Taking a potshot at the CM for misleading people, the Union Minister said unlike the BJD chief, BJP never believes in propaganda to promote political cause.


“Why is the CM shying away from giving the names of people who benefited from the housing schemes if he is confident that his Government has constructed 10 lakh houses in the last two years?” Pradhan questioned.


Responding to the CM’s allegation that opposition political parties are trying to sully the image of BJD by making false accusations, the Union Minister said this implied that Bhubaneswar Mayor Ananta Narayan Jena did nothing wrong.

The CM should explain the delay in investigating the murder case of Asutosh Mohanty (Rishi) by the City police, Pradhan told reporters after a party meeting on panchayat polls.
Union Tribal Affairs Minister Jual Oram also attended the meeting at the State party office here.
