Aparajita Sarangi alleges protocol violation during Shah’s Odisha visit

8/08/2022 at 4:40 PM

Bhubaneswar, August 8: BJP’s Bhubaneswar MP Aparajita Sarangi on Monday alleged that the standard protocol has been violated during Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s Odisha visit.

In a letter to Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik, Sarangi said, “With a heavy heart I am to inform that neither the Minister of State (Home) nor ACS/Principal Secretary to Home Deptt. nor Director General of Police was present to pay respects to the Hon’ble Home Minister and receive him at the airport.”

Stating this as ‘callous’, Sarangi said this kind of behaviour reflects the culture of an Institution.

“Is this right,” she questioned.

“I hope and expect that appropriate instruction will be issued by your good office so that such actions are not repeated,” she further said.

On the other hand, BJD spokesperson Lenin Mohanty countered Sarangi by saying that she is trying to create a controversy in desperation to grab media attention.

“Smt. Aparajita Sarangi in her desperation is trying to create a controversy to grab media attention and look relevant. She knows well that due Protocol has been extended to Hon’ble Home Minister of India as per provisions,” said Mohanty.
