RTI Activists condemn attack on OTV Journalists by KIIT Goon

In a meeting of Odiaha Soochana Adhikar Abhijan (OSAA) a resolution has been passed condemning heinous attack of KIIT Goons to a journalist in Bhubaneswar. Activists demanded immediate arrest of culprits of the case. It has also been appealed to State Government to recommend for CBI inquiry into alleged land scam of KIIT and KISS as per CAG report.

In a Press release, State Convener of OSAA Pradip Pradhan said, “all land records and lease agreement of land given to KIIT by IDCO and General Administration department must be available and put in public domain for greater transparency of land scam of KIIT founder Achyut Samant, if he is not genuinely involved in this scam”.

“Since last two years, both IDCO and GA dept under Chief Minister has been denying me this information under RTI Act. Interestingly, KIIT and KISS is not disclosing any information under RTI. We the RTI Activists challenge KIIT authority to put all information in public domain and Sri Samant should appeal to State Government for CBI inquiry into land, if he is really SAMAJASEVI”, Pradhan added.

Notably the most popular tv channel of Odisha – OTV is telecasting news based on land scams by KIIT and KISS continuously. Yesterday, a reporter of OTV was attacked while covering such a News, in the presence of Police. 

Latest Odisha News tried to contact KIIT authority to take a reaction on the incidentr. But did not get a response.
