BJP youth wing activists hurled eggs at Odisha Chief Minister Naveen
Patnaik’s convoy in Puri town on Wednesday over school teacher Mamita
Meher murder case.

The BJP was demanding removal of Minister of
State for Home, Dibya Shankar Mishra from the Cabinet for his alleged
connection with prime accused of the case, Gobind Sahu.

The egg
attack incident occurred at government hospital square in Puri town when
the Chief Minister was returning to Bhubaneswar after attending the
foundation stone laying ceremony for Jagannath Temple Heritage Corridor
Project.

Despite tight security, the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha
(BJYM) supporters suddenly came up and hurled eggs targeting CM’s
convoy from outside of the barricade, for security reasons, sources
said.

BJYM state president Irasish Acharya has admitted that his
supporters have done it. “Our members from Puri district pelted eggs
and showed black flags. Wherever the chief minister will go, we will
strongly protest. This protest will continue till Patnaik takes action
against some of his tainted ministers,” said Acharya.

Earlier
this morning, eggs were also hurled at the vehicle of Minister Bikram
Keshari Arukha near Malatipatpur while he was on his way to Puri to
attend the same event. Later, the youth BJP activists also ‘purified’
the Badadanda by sprinkling cow dung water. The youth Congress workers
have also protested the visit of the CM to Puri. – iANS
