Bhubaneswar MP Aparajita Sarangi writes to Odisha CM over being ‘detained’ by miscreants

Bhubaneswar: Bhubaneswar MP Aparajita Sarangi has written to Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik over the incident of the parliamentarian being allegedly detained by some miscreants in the capital city on Monday evening.

“With deep anguish, I am to convey to you that I was detained in ward no. 43 (Laxmisagar-Old post office lane) by a handful of miscreants for two hours in the evening hours,” the MP said in the letter.

“It is pertinent to mention here that I work very hard for the welfare of the people of Bhubaneswar Parliamentary Constituency. I try to establish connect with as many residents as possible and for that matter, I am required to hold small meetings in different parts of the Constituency. I had gone to ward no.43 on invitation of residents to hold a meeting when some miscreants/ anti-social elements stopped my car and prevented me from proceeding to the meeting spot. I sat in the car waiting for the police to control the situation for 2 hours,” wrote Sarangi.

“I must mention here that I had been moving in my Constituency since 7AM and was almost without food. Besides, more than 200 people were waiting in my office for public grievances during the time I was detained. This speaks of malicious intent on part of the State Government. Two hours of my time was wasted and there was complete disruption in my office because of hooliganism,” she said.

“Most respectfully, I beg to ask you as to how does the State Government compensate for my lost time. Most humbly, I hereby ask whether Hon’ble CM’s carcade can be stopped even for 5 minutes? I think everybody’s time is equally valuable. I will expect an answer to my query above and I am deeply disturbed because of the indifference of the State Government towards ensuring my security,” she added.
