Egg hurling row: BJP calls for Sundargarh bandh

Sundargarh: Protesting the hurling of eggs at Union Tribal Affairs Minister Jual Oram’s vehicle, the district BJP has called for a 7-hour Sundargarh bandh tomorrow.

Demanding arrest of the persons involved in the incident under the SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, the district unit of the saffron party has decided to observe the bandh here from 6 am to 1 pm tomorrow.

However, health and banking services have been excluded from the ambit of the bandh.

Notably, several BJD workers had allegedly hurled eggs at Oram’s vehicle at Aul Bazaar in Kendrapara district yesterday when the minister was on his way to Rajkanika in the district to attend ‘Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas’ programme.

Senior BJP leader Braja Sundar Bhuyan has filed an FIR at the Aul police station accusing 22 persons in the incident.
