BJD MLA shown black flag in his own constituency

Bhubaneswar: In a major embarrassment to senior BJD leader and Jaydev MLA Sashi Bhushan Behera, the legislator was shown black flag again in his election constituency on Sunday.

According to sources, some locals showed black flag and shouted slogans against Behera while the legislator was on a padyatra to offer garland to Gopabandhu statue located at Baliapatna.

Though the identity of the persons who showed black flag to the MLA is unknown, it is suspected that they are some unsatisfied workers of the ruling party.

When asked about the development, the MLA said, “No one in the party is unhappy. The persons who showed flag are not BJD members.”
