Congress Workers Hurl Eggs At Minister Pratap Jena’s Convoy In Kendrapara


Kendrapara: Some Congress workers backed by a couple of associates threw eggs at Odisha Law Minister Pratap Jena’s convoy while he was on his way to Kendrapara’s Aul area on Tuesday.

Following the act, the activists shouted slogans against the BJD and waved black flags at the Minister too.

The Minister was on his way to inaugurate a developmental project in the area. The workers shouted “Pratap Jena Down Down” and opposed his visit.

However, the police are yet to confirm the miscreants’ intention. It is suspected that the egg attack on the Minister was a mark of protest against the state government’s stand in the investigation into the murder of Kalahandi lady teacher Mamita Meher and Mahanga double murder case.

While such acts have become commonplace in the name of protest, these can lead to serious road accidents, given the speed at which convoy of VIPs moves.
