Bhubaneswar, 6 May-2014, Abhijit Saha: The Union Minister and the chief of State campaign committee Srikant Jena has yesterday alleged that secret pujas were arranged in Guwahati for his defeat.
He said that he came to know that some people have performed secret puja in Guwahati to guarantee his defeat. He then said that he is trying to know the people behind this act.
Elucidating the assertions, Jena said that he limited himself to his own constituency regardless of being the campaign committee chief.
He also said that since I was selected as a party candidate for the Baleswar seat, I didn’t get time to campaign for others. He educated the party general secretary about his powerlessness to campaign for others. In last week also Congress candidate Sarat Rout from Sukinda constituency had alleged that a former PCC president had made a decent attempt to guarantee defeat of PCC chief Jena.
