Updated:3 months, 1 week ago IST

Bhubaneswar (Odisha), Jul 17 (ANI): Union Minister for Petroleum and Natural Gas Dharmendra Pradhan slammed Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik over the issue of missing Jagannath temple keys. He said that his silence on the issue is creating suspicion and that because of the government the image of the temple is getting maligned. He said, “Lot of suspicion has been raised on the matter of ratna bhandar keys. There are lot of rumours going on in the mind of people in the society. All those people who are associated with Lord Jagannath ji are taking this whole matter very seriously. What is wrong on one day they find key and the other day it is lost. How come it is possible? In this entire matter by now Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik is still quiet. If he isn’t uttering a single word then it automatically creates more suspicion in this issue. No meeting was held for so many years and also there is no account of how much property is attached with the temple.”
