Cuttack: The Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM), the youth wing of the BJP, today staged demonstration here at CDA and Jobra barrage ahead of Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik's visit to the city.
Hundreds of BJYM activists were protesting with black flags and bangles at the CDA and Jobra barrage. The party activists also hurled eggs on the police vehicles at Jobra barrage when the men in uniform tried to control the situation.
Police have detained over 50 activists of the youth wing.
However, the CM reached the SCB Medical College and Hospital complex and inaugurated the new building, hostel and auditorium of the Nursing College. He is also scheduled to inaugurate an urban community healthcare centre at CDA and an LED project in the district.
The BJP's youth wing alleged that even though the LED project was funded by the Centre, no BJP leaders have been invited to the inauguration.
Earlier on Friday, the BJP activists had carried out a rally protesting the BJD’s callous attitude for not inviting any BJP leader to the function.
