Bhubaneswar: Odisha BJP spokesperson Golak Mohapatra on Monday asked Ganjam SP Ashish Singh to join politics if the latter is interested to do so.
However the BJP leader appealed the Ganjam SP not to play politics in uniform, saying the Call Details Record (CDR) evincing his link with the Chhatrapur BJD Councillors murder prime conspirator is fake.
Addressing a press conference at party’s headquarter, Mohapatra said, “The CDR, which is making rounds in media, is completely fake and the Ganjam SP should explain what is the source of the CDR. It is a political vendetta against him.”
Mohapatra demanded that CDRs of all the arrested persons should also be released and questioned how the video statement of the prime accused in police custody could be made public.
The saffron party leader also cornered the Ganjam SP alleging that the IPS officer is doing politics.
“The Ganjam SP is trying to intimidate those persons who wish to join BJP. Therefore, he should better quit his government service and join politics instead,” the BJP Spokesperson advised.
According to the CDR, the BJP leader had often spoken with Krushna Chandra Nayak, one of the two conspirators arrested in connection with the murder of Chhatrapur Councillor Laxmidutta Pradhan. The call details of Mohapatra’s number had received calls from Nayak’s number between September 15 and October 22.
The BJP leader is said to have allegedly received calls from the conspirator of the crime while the latter was in Chhatrapur, Cuttack, Calcutta and Uttarakhand along with other conspirator Duryodhan Reddy. He had allegedly talked with the accused 3 times on September 15, once on September 16 and 3 times on September 17.
The call record further revealed that Mohapatra had received calls 18 times from Nayak while the later was in Uttarakhand from where they were arrested.
Nayak had informed the police during integration that Golak had made all arrangements for their stayings in different places before they were arrested.
