Bhubaneswar: Odisha Chief Minister and BJD supremo Naveen Patnaik has praised BJD’s Paradip MLA candidate Sambit Routray who turned pallbearer to carry the body of a person to cremation ground in Jagatsinghpur district during his poll campaign.
While Routray was campaigning in Ranitola village under Tirtol block of Jagatsinghpur, he came to know about the death of one Mohan Mohapatra in the neighbourhood.
After learning this, he immediately stopped the campaign and carried the dead body of Mohapatra to the cremation grounds along with three others.
Praising the exemplary act of Routray, CM Naveen took to Twitter and called him a true representative of the people.
ଲୋକଙ୍କ ସୁଖ ଦୁଃଖରେ ସାଥିରେ ଛିଡ଼ା ହେଉଥିବା ନେତା ହିଁ ପ୍ରକୃତ ଜନପ୍ରତିନିଧି। ନିଜ ନିର୍ବାଚନୀ ପ୍ରଚାର ଅଧାରୁ ବନ୍ଦ କରି କୋକେଇକୁ କାନ୍ଧ ଦେଇ ଶ୍ମଶାନରେ ପହଞ୍ଚାଇ ମାନବିକତାର ପରିଚୟ ଦେଇଛନ୍ତି ଆମ ପାରାଦୀପ ବିଧାୟକ ପ୍ରାର୍ଥୀ ସମ୍ବିତ ରାଉତରାୟ। ମୃତକଙ୍କ ଅମର ଆତ୍ମାର ସଦଗତି କାମନା କରିବା ସହିତ ସମ୍ବିତଙ୍କୁ ମୋର ସାଧୁବାଦ। pic.twitter.com/9qepAePjf3
