Bhubaneswar: Ruling Biju Janata Dal (BJD) MLA Prasanta Kumar Jagadev is again in news for wrong reasons. The legislator infamous for his ‘indecent’ behaviour has landed in trouble as a Junior Engineer has filed a complaint against him.
The Junior Engineer Jagabandhu Sahu registered a complaint with Chilika Development Authority (CDA) over misbehaviour by the local MLA over booking of ‘guest house’.
As per the written complaint, the legislator allegedly used abused and threatened to get Sahu beaten by his men for not obliging him.
Allgedly, the Chilika MLA had booked two rooms at Wetland Research and Training Centre, Barkul for August 15.
The legislator’s family along with Banapur BDO’s family checked in to the government-run property late in the night. As per the telephone booking, the staff gave the keys of room no 203, 204, 205. However, the MLA insisted on swapping it with room no. 201 and 202.
The MLA allegedly under the influence of alcohol got furious and used abusive language against Sahu. This apart, the guests continued to consume alcohol till late night.
The aggrieved government employee has reported this matter to his senior authority seeking action against the MLA.
“We have received a complaint. We will write to the government as to what legal action can be taken against him,” said CDA CEO Susanta Nanda.
On the other hand, the MLA could not be contacted for his comments.
It may be recalled here that last year irate people had ransacked Begunia police station demanding action against Prasanta Jagadev for allegedly threatening a former Sarpanch.
The 51-year-old BJD leader was also accused of misbehaving with makeshift shopkeepers in Bhubaneswar last year, where the video of the incident went viral on various social media platforms.
Notably, despite such repeated incidents no action has been taken against him till date.
