Bhubaneswar: The House Committee formed on September 20 by Odisha Assembly Speaker Pradip Kumar Amat for an inquiry into the alleged breach of privilege by Delhi-based columnist Abhijit Iyer-Mitra following his alleged derogatory remarks against the lawmakers, submitted its report to the Speaker on Friday.

It will be tabled in the House on Saturday.

On November 3, Iyer-Mitra submitted the affidavit before the Leader of Opposition (LoP) Narasingha Mishra-led House panel over his alleged derogatory remarks on Odisha MLAs.

Earlier on October 23, Iyer-Mitra had been asked by the Committee to appear before it on November 2 and submit the affidavit. However, he failed to submit an affidavit on the scheduled date. He was given a last chance by the panel to submit an affidavit on November 3.

Iyer Mitra during his appearance before the panel on October 23 tendered unconditional apology for his “stupidity”.

Iyer-Mitra is currently lodged at the Jharpada Special Jail here.
