The BJP on Sunday lashed out at Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik for his silence on the false affidavit case involving two ruling BJD legislators.

Trapped in the false affidavit controversy, Tirtol MLA Rabindranath Bhoi blamed Jagatsinghpur MLA and former minister Bishnu Das for the wrong doings. The Chief Minister’s silence on the issue is baffling, said State BJP spokesperson Sajan Sharma.

Two law makers of the State have allegedly violated the Representation of the People’s Act and lied to the people.

There are instances of ministers facing dismissal under ‘shadow of corruption’. But the Chief Minister has turned a blind eye to the incident. The two BJD legislators should tender their resignation from the Assembly on moral grounds, he said. When such an allegation came against former minister from Kalahandi Pradeep Nayak, the Chief Minister took no time in asking the former to tender his resignation.

The same yardstick should be applicable to the two BJD MLAs, Sharma said.
