Bhubaneswar: Demanding immediate ouster of Agriculture Minister Pradeep Maharathy for allegedly making objectionable remarks against women recently, activists of BJP Mahila Morcha today gheraoed the Government quarters of the Minister.
Though they tried to barge into the quarters, police intercepted them.
The Morcha hit the streets after a video purportedly showing the Minister making some objectionable comments went viral on social media. Though it is still not clear against whom the comments were made, BJP Mahila Morcha alleged that the Minister made the remarks to insult women activists who attended the recent national executive committee meeting of the party held in Puri.
Senior party leader Simantini Jena said that Maharathy commented that every woman who attended the national convention has two husbands.
