Bhubaneswar, Jun 29:

Senior Biju Janata Dal (BJD) leader and Co-operation and Excise Minster Damodar Rout who often hit the headlines for his no-holds-barred comments seemingly lost his cool after he nudged television journalists while they were reporting the demonstration in front of Raj Bhawan here today.

While #BJDGoondaRaj was all over micro-blogging site Twitter till recently after the Bargarh stone pelting incident, today’s incident is likely to put the BJD veteran and his party in a discomfited situation.

Kanak News representative was asking questions to Agriculture Minister Pradeep Maharathy when the minister suddenly pushed the reporter back and instructed him to move out the sight.

The Agri minister cluelessly stared at the duo when the incident took place.
