Baijayant rejects Egg Attack on Naveen; recalls his Ordeal
ONI Bureau: While disapproving the ‘egg attack’ on CM Naveen Patnaik at Bhograi, Balasore, which did not touch him, Kendrapara MP Baijayant ‘Jay’ Panda recalled a similar attack on him at Mahanga a few months ago.
“I don’t know what was the woman’s complaint and why she hurled eggs at the CM. But, I am not in favour of physical protests. It could have hurt the CM in the eye. I wish she could have protested differently”, said Baijayant Panda.
“I was also attacked last year by some BJD members with eggs, stones and bricks. But, no one was arrested for 4 months,” he added.
Later, Baijayant Panda tweeted again to condemn the attack on the woman by BJD workers, calling it unfortunate. He also wondered how she was assaulted in police custody.
Very unfortunate. I've already said i don't support throwing eggs or other things in protest (see last tweet), it can cause physical harm. But that doesn't mean the perpetrator should be beaten up, that too after police have taken custody of her! https://t.co/fuf5SBWMeh
