BJP demands Odisha CM’s apology in egg hurling case

BHUBANESWAR: BJP on Wednesday demanded unconditional apology from leader minister Naveen Patnaik for allowing birthday party employees to attack the girl who had allegedly hurled eggs on his dais at a public meeting in Balasore district on January 31.

Party veteran Biswabhusan Harichandan whilst addressing media persons right here lashed out on the state government for not arresting the attackers of the girl, Rajashree Kamila alias Mita, following the egg hurling episode. "The woman had hurled eggs on CM's dais demanding justice for Kunduli victim. It did not even touch Naveen, but the party workers assaulted Mita in the presence of police. The chief minister kept quite when his party workers were misbehaving with Mita," he added.

Harichandan said the police slapped attempt to murder charges at the girl for throwing 3 eggs on Naveen, who also holds home ministry in his hand. "The chief minister always claims that his government respects women. But the egg hurling incident exposed their mindset towards women. Mita was assaulted in front of the chief minister of the state. It is unfortunate. He should beg unconditional apology before the women of the state," he added.

The BJP leaders said the girl is present process treatment in the SCB clinical school and health facility. "Fearing any backlash, the police removed the attempt to murder charge. Can the police slap any criminal charges against chief minister? Law is not taking its own course in the state," said the former legislation minister criticizing Naveen.

BJD spokesperson Samir Das said investigation into the matter is happening. "BJD workers did not assault the woman. Police present over there immediately swung into action and protected the woman. BJP is raising the issue to get political mileage. Court will decide who committed the crime. BJP should not pass judgment on this," he added.
