Bhubaneswar, Oct 10: Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan today condemned the bomb attack on BJP leader and Opposition Chief Whip in Odisha Assembly Mohan Charan Majhi.
Two unidentified bike-borne miscreants have allegedly hurled bombs at the Keonjhar MLA’s vehicle at Mandua under Keonjhar Town Police Station. Majhi, however, has escaped unhurt in the incident.
Condemning the attack Pradhan said that the attack in broad daylight raises questions about the law and order situation in the state.
“An attack on an elected people’s representative in broad daylight is really disappointing. The Chief Minister, who is in charge of the Home Department, should intervene and take action against the miscreants involved in the attack,” tweeted Pradhan.
The MLA has lodged a police complaint in this regard. According to reports, the front panel of the MLA’s car has been partly damaged in the bombing incident.
