Verbal spat breaks out between Kendrapara BJD President & Aul MLA

Kendrapara: A heated exchange of words took place between BJD district president Dhruba Sahoo and Congress MLA Devendra Sharma during the District Planning Committee meeting that was held at the Circuit House in the district today.

According to sources, the argument broke out during the review of the implementation of the Gopabandhu GraminYojana in the district.

The verbal spat took place in the presence of Chairperson of the District Planning Board, State Minister Nrusingha Charan Sahu, Rajnagar MLA Anshuman Mohanty, Patkura MLA Ved Prakash Agrawal, Kendrapara district collector and district council members.

“As a responsible member of the board, I think a lot of such arguments and discussions take place during planning board meeting. This should not be necessarily brought before the media,” said Dhruba Sahoo.

“People don’t have any knowledge about laws and rules. He (Dhruba Sahoo) thinks he is still an MLA despite facing defeated in elections. I don’t think anyone listens to him,” said Devendra Sharma.
