Attack on Pandian’s House ‘Act of Hooliganism’: Jay Panda

ONI Bureau: Kendrapara MP Baijayant ‘Jay’ Panda, who is being targeted within his party over his fight with CM’s Private Sectetary VK Pandian, has again condemned the ‘cow dung attack’ by a group of BJP workers at the latter’s residence, saying it was an ‘act of hooliganism’.

Jay Panda made this statement while inaugurating another overhead water tank project built from MPLAD funds at Namatara village under Rajkanika block in Kendrapara district in the presence of thousands of supporters.

Baijayant Panda also rubbished the allegations that he was behind the attack on Pandian’s residence. “It was a malicious campaign, which says the protesters chanted slogans in my favour. There was no such video evidence although 3 TV channel representatives were present at the spot. It was a blatant lie. I have nothing to do with the hooligans,” he said.
