Bhubaneswar MP Aparajita Sarangi written to Odisha Chief Minister expressing displeasure over not being invited to the 74th Bhubaneswar Foundation Day celebration

Bhubaneswar14/4/22: Aparajita Sarangi, Bhubaneswar MP, had written to Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik expressing displeasure over not being invited to the 74th Bhubaneswar Foundation Day celebration by the State Government here.

She urged the CM to direct the concerned authorities to probe into the matter and find out those responsible for the incident.

“I had not been invited by the State Government to attend the function. Neither the invitation card has my name nor I have been spoken to by anybody in the State Government,” wrote Sarangi in the letter.

“As a public representative of the capital, it is my ‘right’ to be invited to the public function which had been organized by the State Government today. Our political ideologies may be different, but you may kindly agree with me that the State Government needs to learn to extend minimum courtesy to the people’s representatives,” the MP said.

“I would sincerely request you to get this issue of omission enquired into. It does not seem to be an innocuous omission. I humbly expect that the concerned State Authorities will be directed by you to enquire into the matter and find out the person/ persons responsible for the omission,” the parliamentarian urged.

“I humbly seek a response to this letter of mine. I am sure that all the people of Bhubaneswar, who have elected me, are deeply hurt today. They would all like to know about the reason behind the omission and about the person/ persons responsible for the same,” she concluded.

Earlier in the day, taking to Twitter, Sarangi wrote, “There is a big function being organised by the State Govt to mark the day. It has invited almost all EXCEPT ME. I have not been invited. Wanted to attend. It is a big day.”

The MP also questioned why she was not invited to the function.

The event was held in front of the Odisha Legislative Assembly building here, this morning in the presence of several ministers, MLAs, bureaucrats, police officials, and the newly-elected Mayor of the Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation, and other dignitaries.
