Bhubaneswar(Samaya Bureau): Union Tribal Affairs Minister Jual Oram today has sought the intervention of the Union Home Affairs Minister Rajnath Singh in the recent egg attack incidenton his vehicle by the ruling BJD workers in Kendrapara district.
In a letter written to Rajnath Singh Jual alleged that it were the hooligans of the BJD who hurled eggs at him. He also alleged that his cavalcade was not provided security by the Kendrapara district administration while it was the duty of the state government to provide him security.
Jual has ridiculed both the BJD and Congress for resorting to such dirty politics in the state. It may be recalled here that earlier another r Union Minister, Radhamohan Singh, too had faced the same problem while on his tour to the state to participate in a BJP’s “Sabka Saath Sabka Bikas” programme.
Jual has urged the Home Minister to intervene in the matter and ask the Odisha government to ensure security to Union Ministers during their visit to the state.
