Bhubaneswar: India Against Corruption (IAC) will soon expose the loot of minerals and the nexus between politicians and industrialists in Odisha, Manish Sisodia, a member of the anti-graft group, said here Friday.
Sisodia said the Biju Janata Dal (BJD) government in Odisha “does not appear to be working for common people”.
He said the way IAC did exposes in New Delhi, similar exposes would be carried out in Odisha in the coming months.
Sisodia alleged that the Congress, the main opposition party in Odisha, appeared to have a nexus with the BJD in helping industries loot the state’s natural resources.
He cited Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik’s recommendation in 2002 to the prime minister for allotment of a coal block to Congress MP Naveen Jindal’s company.
