Naveen can not complete 5-Year Term, says Pyari

Bhubaneswar, Nov 21: Odisha chief minister Naveen Patnaik can not complete his five-year term, said former BJD mentor Pyari Mohan Mohapatra, who was grilled by the CBI on Friday in connection with the Seashore chit fund scam.

Talking to a news channel after a 4-hour long grilling today, the Rajya Sabha MP Mohapatra targeted chief minister Naveen Patnaik saying, the CM can not see himself in power in 2015.

When asked about whether BJD MLA Pravat Biswal was interrogated on the basis of information given by him to media during his grilling, he denied, saying, he has not dragged anyone's name into the case.

He said that he had given right answers to all the questions put during the interrogation and he will maintain this in future.

However, the probe carried out by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) will be interrupted in the middle, he further added.
