Bhubaneswar, Dec 28 (UNI) The All India Christian Council (AICC) today urged the Civil society to set up a fact finding team and visit the affected areas of Kandhmal district to assess the situation.
AICC Secretary General Johan Dayal has alleged that many prayer houses and institutions were damaged during the communal clashes as the administration did not take any step till today to prevent attacks on Christians.
A government which could not maintain the law and order should resign, he demanded.
Mr Dayal said only a balanced fact finding team could assess the situation independently.
Mr Dayal also demanded adequate compensation to the injured and deployment of central paramilitary forces to protect the people and their property.
The Secretary General said he was not satisfied with the judical inquiry ordered by the Chief Minister and demanded a CBI inquiry into the incident.
He urged the government to provide list of casualties and damages of religious places to the members of the National Council for Minority, scheduled to visit on January 6 to 8.
