Ready to resign if BJD’s allegations on poll fund are proved: Union minister Jual Oram

Union minister and BJP leader Jual Oram on Sunday said he is ready to resign if allegations of discrepancies in his poll expenses affidavit, levelled by the ruling BJD in Odisha, are found true.

“The charges levelled by the BJD are false and politically motivated. There is no mismatch in my poll expense figures. I am prepared to face any probe. If the allegations are found true, I will step down as a minister,” he said.

“The allegation against me is false, fabricated and politically motivated. I challenge them (BJD) to take the matter to the court,” Oram said.

The BJD has also said it will move the EC and court seeking action against Oram.

The BJD’s attack on Oram came after the BJP sought Odisha governor SC Jamir’s intervention into alleged misuse of official machinery by the Odisha government to defend the poll expenditure case against the chief minister, who is also the BJD president.

BJP candidate from Hinjili, Devadanda Mahapatra, who was defeated by Patnaik, has moved the Orissa High Court alleging that there were discrepancies in Patnaik’s election expenditure document submitted to the EC.

The high court is scheduled to hear the case on Monday.

Stepping up attack on the chief minister, BJP Odisha unit vice president Sameer Mohanty accused the BJD of denigrating the constitutional mechanism in a desperate bid to save Naveen Patnaik and his image.
