City Mayor Celebrating 27th I-Day!

Bhubaneswar: Politicians putting up wrong pictures, quoting wrong figures and misspelling names on Twitter are nothing new. Mayor Anant Narayan Jena was the latest to suffer from this foot-in-the-mouth syndrome.

While wishing Bhubaneswar denizens, the mayor inadvertently mentioned about celebrating the 27th Independence Day and was later trolled by Twitterati.

He tweeted, “Celebrating the 27th Independence Day in different places of Bhubaneswar. On this auspicious occasion, I extend my best wishes to all.”

Some were of the opinion that his travel back in time reflected in the deplorable drainage system of the Odisha capital.

Politician and actor Akash Dasnayak tweeted, “My tribute to the great souls who fought for our freedom. Happy Independence Day .”

Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan wrote in social media, “है नमन मेरा, उन शहीद हुए मत्वालो को। है नमन मेरा, उनके आज़ादख्यालों को। है नमन मेरा, इस मिटटी की हर संतान को । है नमन मेरा, इस अतुल्य हिन्दुस्तान को। स्वतंत्रता दिवस के अवसर पर समस्त देशवासियोंको मेरी शुभकामनायें।#72ndIndependenceDay.”

Earlier in the day, the Chief Minister unfurled the national flag at the state-level celebration of the 72nd Independence Day at Mahatma Gandhi Marg here.

Extending his greetings to the people of Odisha, the Chief Minister threw light on the initiatives taken by the state government with a priority to farmers, youth and women.
