Bhubaneswar: The State unit of BJP will observe 'Lajja Diwas’ today as a mark of protest against State government's apathy towards deceased home guard Sandeep Hati. The party will launch a signature campaign over the issue at Master Canteen square here.

While informing about it at a press meet on Monday, party vice president Sameer Mohanty and general secretary Prthiviraj Harichandan had criticised the chief minister for not showing sympathy to the family of dead home guard. They demanded a job for a member of his family.

Holding Naveen Patnaik responsible for the death of Hati, the party demanded that CM, who is also heading Home department, should take the moral responsibility and order an inquiry by an independent agency.

The saffron party will also highlight the Nagada malnutrition death, Gumudumaha firing and Dana Majhi issue. It alleged that these issues have brought shame to the State due to government's apathetic nature.
