BRIBE FOUND IN MEDIA KIT GIVEN TO JOURNALISTS DURING VISIT OF UNION MINISTER NITIN GADKARI TO ANUGUL OF ODISHA :

It is very sad that bribe found in media kit given to journalists during visit of the Union Minister Nitin Gadkari to Anugul of Odisha. The journalists alleged that Rs 500 currency note was found in media kit given to them at the meeting. They waved the notes before others to protest against National Highways Authority of India (NHAI). The incident took place just ahead of ground breaking ceremony at Dussehra ground for making three National Highways to four lanes. The media kits were provided to the journalists before Gadkari reached the venue. They found Rs 500 notes in their kits. Notably, Union Road Transport and Highways and Shipping Minister Nitin Gadkari along with his colleagues Union Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan and Union Tribal Affairs Minister Jual Oram is scheduled to attend the Bhumi Pujan (ground breaking ceremony) at Dussehra ground in Angul town for making Angul-Sambalpur, Tileibani-Sambalpur and Balanga-Jharpokharia national highways into four lane roads. Earlier, similar incident was reported at a meeting attended by Odisha MP Pinaki Mishra in Puri in 2014 when the journalists were allegedly provided Rs 200 notes in media kits. Outraged by this, the entire media had confronted the MP and walked out in protest. A police complaint was lodged in this regard demanding action against Mishra. The Odisha Sun Times Bureau : 21st. July,17
