Abuse Allegation: BJP Woman Activist Seeks OSCW Intervention For Action Against Odisha MP
Bhubaneswar: The BJP woman activist of Odisha, who had accused Sundargarh MP and former Union Minister Jual Oram of misbehaving with her and abusing over phone, has sought the intervention of the Odisha State Commission for Women (OSCW) for action against the senior party leader.
Speaking to media persons after meeting OSCW chairperson, here on Thursday, Mundari said she approached the Commission as the police did not take any action on her complaint filed at Jhirpani police station in Rourkela against Oram.
The OSCW has already asked Rourkela SP to inquire into the matter and submit the report. The Commission issued the direction a day after the matter was reported in the media.
Earlier, Mundari said she had wanted to meet Oram to discuss the panchayat polls and as he was coming to Rourkela, she called him up to find out when she could meet him on January 24. Instead, the MP started abusing her. Oram used filthy and foul language against her that she cannot describe, she alleged.
Audios also surfaced purportedly of Mundari’s phone conversation with Oram and the woman who later answered her call.
On the other hand, BJP’s Panposh organisational district president Latika Pattanaik had claimed that Mundari created a ruckus after being denied a party ticket for the panchayat polls.
