A day before the second phase of the Lok Sabha polls in Odisha, Biju Janta Dal (BJD) wrote to the Chief Electoral officer in Odisha to take actions against Dharmendra Pradhan, the union minister for allegedly misbehaving with the government officials while they wanted to check his helicopter in suspect of the unaccounted cash during the election duty.

The BJD leaders alleged Dharendra Pradhan of hiding the unaccounted cash in a sealed suitcase that he denied to be investigated by the election officials. The complaint from the BJD leaders said that many TV channels yesterday telecasted that the BJP leader Dharmendra Pradhan is misbehaving with the government officers and preventing them to check his helicopter and a sealed suitcase. The investigation was being done as part of the election duty checking.

The party leaders demanded that the investigation should be carried out and the contents of the suitcase should be made public as there is a suspicion of alleged cash in the suitcase which might be used for the voters influence.

The complaint stated, “We demand that the contents of the sealed suitcase, which was in his possession, is informed to the public and revealed, especially since the apprehensions of him carrying unaccounted cash in that sealed suitcase is being at suspect.”

Dharmendra Pradhan, son of former BJP MP Dr. Debendra Pradhan, is a BJP leader and currently the Minister of Petroleum & Natural Gas and Skill Development & Entrepreneurship in the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) Government.

The 17th Lok Sabha polls will be held in seven phases. Odisha will go to polls with its five parliamentary constituencies today, April 18. The results will be announced on May 23.
