Nabarangpur: Irate locals of Kalegaon today gheraoed BJD's Jharigaon Assembly seat candidate Prakash Majhi while he was campaigning in the village. The incident came to light after a video purportedly showing Prakash being opposed surfaced on different social media platforms.
As per reports, Prakash, who is minister Ramesh Majhi's younger brother, had visited Kalegaon for an election rally. During the rally, some irate villagers alleging lack of development in the 19 years of BJD rule opposed Prakash. The video shows one of the villagers snatching the mic from Prakash and preventing him from speaking even a word. It can be clearly noted from the video that Prakash was speechless to the questions and allegations made by the locals.
While Prakash is the BJD candidate from the Jharigaon constituency, Uldhara Majhi has been fielded by the Congress party and Parshuram Majhi is the BJP candidate.
