The release of Delhi Journalist Abhjit Mitra Iyer has drawn scathing remarks from former Supreme Court judge Markandey Katju. He has challenged Odisha to put him behind bars for making statements against Odisha and Odias earlier in 2016 and later apologizing for it.
He posted in his immitable way, “Odias, I joked about you too ( see my earlier FB post). So when are you going to jail me? Ofcouse I apologised, as did Abhijit Iyer-Mitra. But surely I need to be locked up for 43 days before release” – on Facebook and Twitter.
Earlier in 2016, Katju has belittled Odias and Odisha of being poor chaps on his twitter handler.
