Bhubaneswar,14/04/19:With the conclusion of first phase polls, the State unit of BJP has levelled serious allegations of ostracisation of its party workers in Chikiti Assembly constituency of Ganjam district.
BJP candidate from the constituency, Manoranjan Samantaray has alleged that BJD activists have ostracised his supporters and agents at several places of the Assembly segment after the conclusion of first phase elections.
In a video clip, one G Debendra, a supporter of Samantaray was seen narrating the ordeal how BJD workers have been threatening and ostracised him for campaigning for the BJP candidate.
“Neither we are being allowed to use village water, nor are we allowed to buy ration. No one is also communicating with us and the only reason for that is, we are supporting a different party other than BJD,” said complainant G Debendra.
Not only Debendra, but BJD activists have also resorted to threatening BJP agents and workers by forcibly collecting Rs 1000 from them as penalty for supporting the saffron party.
“At least six agents of our party in Govindpur village have been penalised with Rs 1000 while many others have been ostracised. I too was also attacked by BJD activists. We demand that something needs to be done to end this hooligansim right away,” said BJP candidate Manoranjan Samantaray.
