Bhubaneswar: Opposition Congress on Thursday brought a privilege notice against Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik, accusing him of misleading the assembly with "false and fabricated statements".

The notice was given by Leader of Opposition Narasingha Mishra of Congress, who said in a letter to the secretary of Odisha assembly that the false and fabricated statement was made in connection with a calling attention notice.

 

Mishra said in the letter that Patnaik had made the statement while replying to the calling attention notice on August 5, 2010. The then minister of parliamentary affairs had given the reply on behalf of the chief minister.

"Recently, one of the spokesperson of the ruling party (BJD) has stated before the media that the chief minister's statement in the assembly was false. Further, he (had) stated that government always submits false information before the House," Mishra said.

Deputy speaker Sanand Marndi said Speaker Niranjan Pujari will take the final decision on Mishra's notice.
