By Odisha Story Bureau, Jharsuguda:

BJP’s youth wing Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) activists on Saturday hurled eggs and displayed blag flags to Minister of Steel and Mines Prafulla Mallick at Jharsuguda.

Minister was going to inaugurate a bridge while some BJP workers threw eggs at his convoy and protested the visit . They raised slogans against Mallick and  displayed black flags as a symbol of their protest.

Meanwhile, police have been deployed in the area to miantain law and order  while one person has been detained in the case.

The sparing between BJD and BJP workers and Ministers is not new as many such incidents have occurred in last few months.

Among them notably, attack on Union Minister Santosh Gangwar and his convoy during Vikas Utsav at Bargarh, clash of both party workers at Angul and misdemeanour to SP Jalan, attack on BJP activists by BJD leader Prashant Jagdev and other party workers at Manmunda in Boudh district, waving black flags at BJD Minister Arukh during a mini marathon in Phulabani are only some incidents in last few months that has shown the extent of escalated enmity between both the ruling and opposition parties.
