BJD Seeks Action Against Bhubaneswar MP Aparajita Sarangi For Violating COVID-19 Norms
Bhubaneswar: The BJD on Friday urged the Centre to caution the BJP leader and Bhubaneswar MP Aparajit Sarangi for gross violation of COVID-19 guidelines.
In a letter to Union minister of state for Home Nityanand Rai, BJD leader and minister of state for Home Dibya Shankar Mishra said a video shows the Bhubaneswar MP celebrating her birthday on October 8 with hundreds of women with utter disregard to COVID guidelines. None of them (except one) is found wearing masks or maintaining social distance. Mishra has sent the video along with the letter.
Stating that the BJP MP has violated the advisories for three times, Mishra said there is no improvement in her behaviour. These irresponsible acts will put her, people near to her and the public at large at grave risk. “Such irresponsible behaviour on the part of a people’s representative will demotivate the COVID warriors and is an insult to all those who have lost their lives,” Mishra said.
He urged the Union minister to bring this to the notice of the Prime Minister and the Union Home minister and advise their party MP not to endanger the lives of the people of Bhubaneswar.
