Srimandir Heritage Corridor project: Whatever Sambit Patra is saying & doing is drama, says BJD’s Pratap Deb
Bhubaneswar: BJD spokesperson Pratap Deb came down heavily on BJP national spokesperson Samibt Patra on Wednesday saying that whatever he (Sambit Patra) is saying and doing over the Srimandir Heritage Corridor project is nothing but a drama.
Soon after Patra visited the Srimandir Heritage Corridor project site today and reviewed the controversial work in Puri; Pratap Deb held a press meet where-in he questioned that did he (Sambit Patra) ever speak about Lord Jagannath or visited Puri before being chosen as a BJP’s MP candidate for Puri parliamentarian constituency? All what he is doing now is a drama and is only to stay in the limelight.
Likewise, MLA Santosh Singh Saluja said that they (BJP and BJD) should not indulge in politics over the heritage corridor project. The work must be done in accordance with the rules and permission of the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) keeping in mind the safety of the Srimandir.
Backing the project, Puri MLA Jayant Sarangi said that the work must be done as per the rules and there should not be any illegality. It should be completed as soon as possible or else it will pose threat to the Srimandir if delayed.
