Bhubaneswar: Ahead of the commencement of the Monsoon Session of the Odisha Assembly, members of Mo Dal today staged protest on road in front of the Assembly opposing the alleged dominance of bureaucrats in the functioning of the State Administration.
They staged a sit-in protest on the portion of the road and raised slogans against 5T Secretary VK Pandian. As they tried to enter the premises of the Odisha Assembly, police intercepted them.
They were later picked up by the cops from the spot and taken into preventive custody.
“VK Pandian has been holding meetings and announcing packages for the people of the state. He should run the Assembly and the MLAs need to return home. We are staging a peaceful protest to give this message,” said Akshay Kumar, leader of Mo Dal.
“The State Government has done nothing significant for the farmers. The people will give a befitting reply to the government during the 2024 elections,” he added.
