Bhubaneswar, Nov 25 (UNI) The legislature party meeting of four political parties today demanded immediate ouster of a minister from the state Cabinet for his alleged sexual activities in the state guest house in New Delhi recently.
The Legislators of the NCP, CPI, CPI(M) and JMM in a meeting here passed a resolution in this regard.
The Minister was allegedly locked in a room from outside while he was with a girl on November 5.
The meeting also condemned the police action on common people and shopkeepers at Brahmagiri on November 20 during the visit of Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik and demanded adequate compensation to the shopkeepers whose shops were looted on that day.
They also condemned the government failure to provide protection to Swami Laxamandna Saraswati, contain the communal riot and violence and protect the minorities in the aftermath of the Swamiji's murder.
The leaders alleged that instead of containing the riot the ruling party members of the BJD and BJP were seen promoting violence at some places.
They also expressed concern over the rising incidents of crimes in the state during the rule of Naveen Patnaik government. They said the law and order situation has come to such a pass that the criminals were being forcibly taken out of the Jharsuguda jail.
While the government failed to control the Maoist activities, the Chief Minister was busy in pre-election campaign with the help of police and government machinery, they alleged.
