Naveen disapproves egg throwing




 Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik today said he disapproved the practice of throwing of eggs against political opponents including visiting Union ministers.

"I thoroughly disapprove egg throwing. This is not proper in democracy," Patnaik told reporters during his visit to Puri where opposition Congress and BJP supporters made an attempt to show black flags to the chief minister.

The police detained three BJP supporters at Satsankha under Pipili Police Station area when they were trying to show black flags at the chief minister on his way to Puri for attending a meeting.

Earlier during the day, four members of Puri Sachetan Nagarik Manch and two Congress activists were also detained by police ahead of the chief minister's visit to Puri.

Patnaik himself was a victim of egg hurling when student activists of Congress hurled eggs at his cavalcade in the state capital last year.

Patnaik's statement on egg hurling came a day after police in Kendrapara district arrested seven persons on the charge of hurling eggs and showing black flags to Union Tribal Affairs Minister Jual Oram on June 14.






Editorial

Précis 2017
From asking his party men to ‘live a simple life and serve the people’ to taunting the BJP for its ‘crocodile tears’, Chief Minister and BJD supremo Naveen Patnaik has not only become politically invincible, he seems to be so in the coming years too.
