Extending support to the demand for a bench of the Orissa High Court in Western Odisha, the BJP Legislature Party (BJPLP) on Monday decided to raise the issue in the Assembly. The meeting, chaired by leader of BJPLP Jayanarayan Mishra, said the demand of the western Odisha people for a High Court bench is justified.

 The party legislators lashed out at the Government for not submitting a proposal to the Centre despite assurances from Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and the then Union Law Minister Veerappa Moily to consider the demand. Moily, during a visit to Sambalpur, had  assured that the demand of the State Government will be considered it it submits a proposal to the Centre, Mishra said.

 On the chit fund case, the BJPLP said Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik is not handing over the case to the CBI as many influential ruling party leaders are involved in the multi-crore scam. The party will take up the issue in the Assembly and demand a special provision to repay the depositors.

 Expressing concern over the increasing atrocities on women and criminal activities in the State, the meeting said the Government has failed in maintaining the law and order situation.
