Bhubaneswar: The BJP on Monday alleged that the State Planning Board has been converted into a rehabilitation centre for disgruntled BJD leaders.
“The State Government has never given importance on the Planning Board. Earlier, the board was used to give Cabinet posts to dissident leaders. The board was completely inactive for the last nine months. While the name of Sanjay Dasburma started doing round for a Rajya Sabha post, he was rehabilitated in the board as its vice-chairman,” alleged BJP spokesperson Golak Mohapatra.
Mohapatra further alleged that the State Planning Board has no link with the planning of the State Government. The board has not met since 2007, he pointed out.
