Eggs, Black Flags Greet BJD Minister, MLA In Bargarh On Way To CM's Meeting

Eggs were hurled targeting a state minister and an MLA of the ruling BJD in Odisha on Saturday as the opposition BJP and Congress intensified their stir demanding removal and arrest of minister D S Mishra for his alleged links with the prime accused in the kidnap and murder case of a woman teacher. Both of them faced the ire of the activists of the opposition parties while they were on their way to attend Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik's meeting at Bijepur in Bargarh district. The BJP workers hurled eggs targeting Odisha's SC and ST Development Minister Jagannath Saraka's vehicle at Paikamala Chhak. BJD MLA from Atabira and former minister Snehangini Chhuria also faced a similar attack by Congress workers at Ekamra Chhak here when she was on her way to Bijepur to participate in the programme. Patnaik was in Bijepur to launch the distribution of smart health cards under Biju Swasthya Kalyan Yojan (BSKY) in the Bargarh district. - via
