The Mahila Morcha of Odisha BJP today gheraoed the house of Revenue and Disaster Management minister Bijayshree Routray and burnt his effigy for fraudulently acquiring a plot at Kharavela Nagar in the capital city and not acting against persons involved in the land grab case at Ghangapatna.

The women’s wing of BJP also demanded arrest of Routray for misbehaving with a lady journalist at his ministerial chamber.

“The Revenue minister grabbed a plot in a prime locality of the capital city fraudulently. While the land was allocated to his wife to run a nursing home, the minister has been using it for residential purpose. Besides, the minister is shielding the ruling politicians involved in the land grabbing at Ghangapatna,” said Srimantini Jena, president of BJP Mahila Morcha.
