BJD MLA manhandles Pulwama martyr’s kin, forces him to kneel to get more camera space for himself

As per reports, BJD minister Pratap Jena, Niali MLA Pramod Mallik and Cuttack-Chowdwar MLA Prabhat Biswal, along with several state police officials were also present when the incident transpired.

In a shameful display of utter insensitivity and lack of basic human etiquettes, a BJD MLA was seen manhandling, and shoving the family member of a martyred soldier during the last rites.

In a video that has now gone viral over social media, Cuttack-Barabati MLA Debashish Samantray was seen pushing, shoving and forcing a man, reportedly the uncle of Pulwama martyr Manoj Behera, to kneel down when the soldier’s last remains were kept for the final rites.

In the video, Samantray is seen first objecting to the man, who is reportedly the martyr’s uncle, standing beside him just before the last rites were about to begin. In an attempt to make the man kneel beside the martyr’s coffin (and not stand beside the MLA), he is seen pushing and shoving the man so hard that the old man fell down near the soldier’s coffin.

It is evident that the MLA did not want the man standing up with him as he posed for photographs.

As per reports, BJD minister Pratap Jena and Niali MLA Pramod Mallik and Cuttack-Chowdwar MLA Prabhat Biswal were also present when the incident transpired.

The MLA’s arrogant and shameful act has created a lot of reactions over social media.
