Kendrapara: Anubhav Mohanty, who was on a visit to flood-ravaged Alapua village under Pattamundai block of the district on Monday, was gheraoed by locals over alleged negligence on part of the actor-turned-MP citing that he is seldom seen in the worst-hit areas.
Expressing their discontent, the affected people confronted him as soon as he got down of his vehicle and alleged that he had not paid a visit to their area till now.
"Now that the MP is here for an inspection, he should visit all the affected areas and take stock of the situation to wipe out the misery of the people," stated the agitated villagers. The people, some of whom have lost their houses and belongings to the flood, further demanded adequate relief materials apart from supply of food till the crisis subsides.
However, seeing the people's mood, the MP was reportedly seen hurrying back into his vehicle and allegedly made an exit without pacifying them.
