Bhubaneswar: Election Commission’s Flying Squad checked BJD president and Odisha Chief Miniter Naveen Patnaik’s helicopter and luggage in Rourkela on Tuesday. A video of flying squad officials inspecting Patnaik’s helicopter has now gone viral on social media.
The flying squad personnel conducted the searches soon after Naveen arrived at Rourkela where he held a roadshow and sought votes for his party candidates.
In the 2.20-minute video, Patnaik and his personal security officers were seen cooperating with the flying squad team unlike Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan, who was seen threatening the flying squad officers on the same day.
In a viral video, BJP’s Dharmendra was seen screaming at the top of his voice and demanded the officials to show the documents while the Election Commission’s Flying squad tried to check his Helicopter near Sambalpur’s MCL Helipad yesterday.
Earlier too, Bharatiya Janata Party’s MLA candidate for Hinjili constituency Pitambar Acharya was caught on camera misbehaving with Election Commission’s flying squad and on-duty police personnel.
