BHUBANESWAR/KENDRAPARA: It seems no takers for Kendrapara MP Anubhav Mohanty after the Actor elected to Lok Sabha from one of the most politically sensitive districts in Odisha, defeating Mighty Baijayant ‘Jay’ Panda of BJP.
Last night, Anubhav reportedly abused by some miscreants at Nandi Sahi in Cuttack. In a series of Tweets, the Actor-turned MP has claimed that a person namely Manjeet Das was creating disturbance in the locality. After he intervened, the accused hurled abuses at him, the MP alleged.
“Manjeet Das and his associates thrashed me. Though police reached the spot, they didn’t take any action against Manjeet. When Anubhav Mohanty intervened in the matter, Manjeet abused him using slangs,” said a youth in a video posted by the Kendrapara MP on Twitter.
Within months of his election, a Cuttack based Woman Journalist Sasmita Acharya had lodged FIR at Purighat police station in Cuttack under Sections 294 (obscene act in public), 354 (A) (sexual harassment), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt) and 34 (criminal act) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) against the MP.
The Local police in Cuttack had recorded statements of woman journalist, Sasmita Acharya, who had accused BJD’s Kendrapara MP at the JMFC court in Cuttack under section 164 of CrPC but no action taken against the BJD National Spokesperson. The FIR also figured MP’s actress wife Barsa Priyadarshini Mohanty and brother Anuprasa Mohanty, who is interested in mining business in Keonjhar-Sundargarh.
However, BJD MP Anubhav Mohanty had refuted the allegations and had termed it as conspiracy against him.Even though BJD has made Anubhav Mohanty as one of their National Spokesperson but not a single day anyone can see the MP in TV channel in National debates or debates relating to Odisha’s interest. “Not a single impressive developmental work has been taken by the MP since his election to Lok Sabha, added a local in Kendrapara.
