BJD demanded to arrest ex-MP Baijayant Panda for allegedly hovering a helicopter over ‘no flying eco-sensitive zone’

Bhubaneswar:18/9/18: Trouble seems to be mounting for ex-MP Baijayant Panda as legislators of Odisha’s ruling BJD today demanded his arrest for allegedly hovering a helicopter over ‘no flying eco-sensitive zone’ of Chilika lagoon on September 15.

Holding banners, many BJD MLAs today staged a dharna near the Mahatma Gandhi statue on the premises of Odisha Legislative Assembly demanding Panda’s arrest.

The ruling party members also demanded the arrest of his friend Abhijit Iyer Mitra, who was present in the chopper while Panda was flying it.

Worth mentioning, Iyer had on September 16 posted a video on Twitter making remarks on the Sun Temple in Konark while being present at the spot. Alleging that the remarks were distasteful and it hurt sentiments of the people of Odisha, the BJD MLAs demanded Iyer’s arrest.
