Bhubaneswar: Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan has attacked the Naveen Government severely on the ground of prevailing bribery in the system after one Laxmidhar Behera committed suicide. Laxmidhar, a resident of Nirakarpur in the District of Khurda is alleged to have become a victim of the Percentage Commission known as PC.

If a viral video clip is to be believed, Laxmidhar ended his life because he could not bribe some of the officials in his block to avail benefit under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana. In the video, he is seen to be alleging that some officials were demanding Rs 20,000 to Rs 25,000 to grant his a Pucca house under the government’s housing scheme.

Dharmendra Pradhan called the death of laxmidhar as a “state-sponsored killing.”   This is just one of the many in Odisha, he says on his twitter platform.

“Loss of life of poor and innocent people for bribery is extremely unfortunate. But this is the real picture of Odisha.” He tweets. “The Chief Minister is sitting mute like Nero fiddled while Rome burnt.”

In an aggressive jibe, he goes further to attack by saying, “Will the Chief Minister, who had said “PC must stop” say again “apana mane Khushi ta, (are you happy)?”

“PC must stop” is the call- phrase he had given against bribery and the “Apanamane Khusi ta” is his latest pet phrase for interactions with people over his welfare schemes.
