Bhubaneswar: Demanding CBI investigation into the multi-crore mining and land scams in Odisha, the All India Forward Bloc today threatened to release names of the influential persons including leaders of the ruling party allegedly involved in the land grabbing soon.

 “Our state unit activists would release names of the leaders, bureaucrats and other involved in the land scam.

We will stage protests wherever the tainted leaders and officers go to attend meetings,” AIFB general secretary Debabrata Biswas told reporters here.

Stating that the party would start its agitational programmes on land scam and mining scam too, Biswas said AIFB would continue its efforts to form a government in Odisha.

“Both NDA government headed by Narendra Modi and BJD government of Naveen Patnaik have been working for the betterment of the multi-national companies,” Biswas alleged.  Biswas said the party's state convention would be held at Puri in November.

“Till then, we appoint Purnachandra Padhi as the state Convenor of the AIFB in Odisha,” he said and welcomed former AISF state President Jyoti Ranjan Mohaopatra and his supporters in the party.
