The youth wing of the Odisha Congress on Sunday announced its plan to intensify ongoing agitations seeking justice for Mamita Meher by holding several protests in Odisha and New Delhi in the month of November.

Addressing a presser, Youth Congress President Smruti Lenka today said that a massive demonstration will be organised in front of Odisha Raj Bhawan for two consecutive days on November 6 and 7. The Youth Congress will also submit a memorandum to the Odisha Governor demanding dismissal of Minister of State (Home) Dibya Shankar Mishra.

The party is demanding that Mishra should also be brought under the purview of the investigation in the wake of his alleged complicity in the case due to links with prime accused Gobinda Sahu. “People of State were expecting that BJD supremo Naveen Patnaik to take action against the Minister whose role is being alleged in the sensitive case. However, it is unfortunate the way the State government is maintain silence on the matter. Even the concerned Minister, who did not utter a single word after the case, recently claimed innocence by releasing a statement,” said Lenka.

According to Lenka, the Youth Wing of the Congress will stage demonstration in front of the office of the Resident Commissioner at Delhi on November 10, 2021 if no justice is delivered in the case. On November 11, a massive demonstration will be staged at Jantar Mantra. Several senior leaders of Congress will be attending the protest meeting.

“We will be submitting a memorandum to the President of India on November 11 or 12 and we are hoping that an impartial probe is carried out in the Mamita Meher murder case,” Lenka added.
