Mishra said in the letter that Patnaik had made the statement while replying to the calling attention notice on August 5, 2010. The then minister of parliamentary affairs had given the reply on behalf of the chief minister.

“Recently, one of the spokesperson of the ruling party (BJD) has stated before the media that the chief minister’s statement in the assembly was false. Further, he (had) stated that government always submits false information before the House,” Mishra said.

Deputy speaker Sanand Marndi said Speaker Niranjan Pujari will take the final decision on Mishra’s notice.
