BHUBANESWAR: The Odisha Pradesh Youth Congress (OPYC) today demanded a judicial probe should be ordered into the discrepancies in the poll expenditure statements of chief minister Naveen Patnaik and union minister Jual Oram.
Alleging that both the BJD and BJP are guilty of submitting false affidavits on election expenditure to the Election Commission of India (ECI), secretary of All India Youth Congress (AIYC) and Odisha in-charge Purnachandra Padhi demanded that Naveen and Oram should resign and face probe.
Youth Congress activists demonstrated at the Master Canteen square here and burnt the effigies of the chief minister and union minister demanding their resignation. OPYC president Loknath Maharathi announced that the Youth Congress will intensify its agitation unless both the BJD and BJP come clean on their election expenditure in the 2014 election.
The Youth Congress activists also brought out a motorcycle rally led by Bhubaneswar Lok Sabha constituency president Swarup Das from Ganganagar square to Master Canteen square.
