BJP MLA Bishnu Charan Sethi sings songs in Odisha Assembly

Bhubaneswar: BJP MLA Bishnu Charan Sethi took everyone by surprise in the State Assembly on Tuesday, as he sang a song during the Zero Hour seeking government quarters in the state capital.

Sethi, MLA from Dhamnagar and the deputy leader of the opposition in the Legislative Assembly, sang the song on the floor of the House in Odia addressing the plight of legislators who were yet to be allotted government quarters here.

As part of his song, the BJP leader asked the Chief Minister to look into the matter as seven months have been passed since they assumed power, but they have not been allotted official residence.

The saffron leader alleged that the legislators have been given a 10×12 size room for which they find difficult to bring their family members in the city.  He also said, the lawmakers have been facing problems to accommodate the visiting persons from their constituency.

The BJP MLA also sought speaker Surjyo Narayan Patro’s intervention into the matter.

Odisha CM Launches District Palliative Care Programme

Bhubaneswar: Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Friday said politicising any human tragedy, especially relating to women, is inhuman and this kind of politics would never give any returns.

“Forget that I’m Chief Minister for 19 years or that I am President of Biju Janata Dal. As a senior Member of this House, I would humbly like to mention something — politicising any human tragedy especially relating to women is inhuman,” said the Chief Minister in the state Assembly.

The opposition Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) have targeted the state government over the mysterious death of a lady village level worker (VLW) in Jajpur district. They have been raising the issue in the House.

“This kind of politics will never give any returns. We are a mature democracy. We represent the four and a half crore people of Odisha. Let us set high standards of political discourse both in the Assembly and outside,” the Chief Minister said.

“Rape, murder, death of women are extremely sad events. Politicising them multiplies the trauma and gives a very wrong message to the people at large and young people in particular. In case anyone is not satisfied with the investigation, there are legal fora for relief,” he added.

Patnaik assured that crime against women will be one of the topmost priorities and the government will leave no stone unturned to ensure that justice is done.

“Let me assure that any case of neglect, especially relating to women and children, will not be spared, exemplary action would be taken,” he said.

The Chief Minister informed the Assembly that due to prompt and professional investigation, the death penalty had been awarded to the accused persons under the POCSO Act in four sensational cases of rape and murder of minor girls.

Moreover, there has been an increase in the conviction rate in red-flag cases, which has gone up to 41.48 percent in 2019, he added.

Ram Nath Kovind OdishaBhubaneswar: While NDA nominee Ram Nath Kovind was elected the 14th President of India, defeating UPA nominee Meira Kumar, details of voting in Odisha Assembly have been out too.

Out of 147 MLAs in Odisha Assembly, 127 (mostly BJD and BJP) voted for Ram Nath Kovind, while 17 MLAs voted for Meira Kumar. Interestingly, Congress has 16 MLAs in the Assembly and one of them (Subal Sahu) did not vote due to illness. So, it’s clear that Meira Kumar received a few votes from other parties.

Two votes were found invalid during the voting process. The BJD had extended its support to Ram Nath Kovind. Meanwhile, CM Naveen Patnaik has congratulated Kovind on his victory and tweeted, “Congratulate Shri Ramnath Kovind ji on being elected President of India. We look forward to work under his leadership at @RashtrapatiBhvn”.
