Publicise Dr Taradatt-headed Taskforce probe report on DQ, demand rights bodies

Bhubaneswar, November 17: Coming down heavily on the Odisha Government, as many as 28 civil society organisations, which have been demanding a CBI probe into the mega land and house allotment scam, have demanded that the State Government make the Dr Taradatt-headed Taskforce report public and punish the elements involved in this incident according to the law.

“We demand that the Government make public the report of the three-member Taskforce headed by Additional Chief Secretary (Revenue) Taradatt, appointed to probe all allotments of Government land and houses under the discretionary quota (DQ) in Bhubaneswar and Cuttack since 1995,” said rights activist Pradip Pradhan.

He said a mega rally would be held in front of the State Assembly on November 28 to press the demand.

“Dr Taradatt claimed to have submitted the eagerly-awaited report to the Government on October 31. But the State Government is neither making it public nor taking any action against persons responsible,” added Pradhan.

“Since more than 15 days have already elapse since the Taraaatt committee submitted its report to the Government, why is the Government not making it public?” questioned Pradhan.
