Believe it or not! Out of the 21 Lok Sabha members from Odisha elected in 2009, five were involved in alleged criminal cases with the highest number of four from the State’s ruling BJD, including one with a serious criminal case against him.
According to the data released by the National Election Watch (NEW) here on Friday, this is in contrast with the 2004 Lok Sabha polls when three MPs had serious criminal cases against them.
The MPs with declared criminal cases include the BJD’s Kalikesh Narayan Singh Deo of Balangir with two criminal and five other cases under IPC, Tathagata Satpathy of Dhankanal with 15 criminal cases and 30 cases under IPC, Yasbanta Narayan Lagauri of Keonjhar with one criminal case and Nityananda Pradhan of Aska with one and Bhakata Charan Das (Congress) of Kalahandi with four cases and six cases under IPC.
And six Odisha MPs are corepatis and all of them are of the BJD. While Puri MP Pinaki Mishra’s assets are worth Rs 29.69 crore, that of Baijayant Panda (Kendrapada) amounts to Rs 16.11 crore,  Bhartruhari Mahtab Rs 5.11crore and Kalikesh Singh Deo Rs 3.86 crore.
