Bhubaneswar: Congress legislator from Kotpad Chandrasekhar Majhi today got into a controversy after a tiff with security personnel at the entry gate of State Secretariat.
According to sources, the MLA forcibly tried to enter the State Secretariat through Gate No. 1 on a bike flouting the security norms laid down for entry into the premises. As per the Secretariat security norms, pedestrians and bikers are not allowed to enter the secretariat through gate number one. There are other gates earmarked for the two wheelers.
On being asked, Majhi said he was not aware of the prohibitory rules. ‘’I felt insulted when intercepted by security personnel. I didn't misbehave with them, it was just a verbal tiff," said the legislator in his defence.
Meanwhile, a security personal said he requested the MLA not to enter through the gate and even other officials along with their senior officer tried to make him understood the security norms but he didn’t listen to anyone.
"Even after being denied once and requested not to come for entry through the gate, he came again, said a security personal.
