Bhubaneswar: Union Minister Babul Supriyo on Thursday derided the ruling BJD and Congress in Odisha by saying he would make omelet if eggs were hurled at him.
“There is an iota of fear in me. I heard some people hurled eggs. I am a non-vegetarian. If BJD and Congress workers hurl eggs at me, I’ll make omelet with it and eat that,” the minister of state for heavy industries told reporters when asked whether he was afraid of facing egg attack in the state.
