Ex-minister Jayanarayan Jailed for Wielding Sword

Former minister and senior BJP leader Jayanarayan Mishra was arrested here on Wednesday for allegedly wielding a sword in violation of prohibitory orders by the administration during Hanuman Jayanti celebrations.

Two separate FIRs were registered against Mishra at Dhanupalli and Town police stations for wielding sword during the procession here on Tuesday.

Mishra’s action amounted to violation of prohibitory orders under Section 144 of CrPC, which had been imposed by the district administration as a precautionary measure to ensure peaceful celebration of Hanuman Jayanti, police said.

Mishra, who was picked up from his party office here, however, claimed that he had not done anything “wrong” and his arrest was part of a “political conspiracy.” Mishra was sent to jail after his bail plea was rejected by the Court of SDJM.

The District BJP and Hanuman Jayanti Samanwaya Samiti (HJSS) called for 12-hour Sambalpur bandh on Thursday protesting against Mishra’s arrest and police action.

Mishra has been accused of wielding sword thrice, once near Hanuman Temple at Brooks Hill, then near Zilla School Chowk and finally when the procession reached Peer Baba Chowk late in the night.

Police picked up Mishra from the District BJP office on Wednesday and immediately shifted him to Sambalpur Sadar Police Station.

Later, they brought him to the court amidst high drama with BJP workers blocking the police vehicle.

Condemning the arrest, senior BJP leader Suresh Pujari said since the matter is sub judice, let law take its own course. But Section 144 A of CrPC was enacted in 2005 and denotified in 2006 and hence not in existence, he observed. He said that under the circumstances, the entire procedure of promulgation of Section 144 A CrPC is null and void.

One of the deceased belongs to Belpahar in Jharsuguda district, and the other two belong to Bargarh district.

Reportedly, the doctors conducted caesarean section on nine women on Saturday. The women were kept in the observation room after this operation.

But, three of them reportedly died one after the other immediately when they were shifted to the observation room. The doctors suspect the deaths could have taken place due to the side effects of medicines provided by the government to the hospital.

Following the incident, the supply of medicines by the government to the Gynaecology ward of the hospital were ceased.

“The post-surgery condition of the three women was all right. But their condition deteriorated suddenly after taking the medicines. After a bout of severe vomiting, they foamed and died suddenly. We suspect the death could be due to the reaction of the drugs administered on them,” Dr Lalmohan Nayak, assistant professor, Gynaecology, reportedly said.

It is noted that before 2 years, nine newborn babies have died at the VSS Medical College and Hospital in Burla in the 24 hours.

Prohibitory Order Imposed In Sambalpur

Keeping in view the ensuing Hanuman Jayanti festival, prohibitory orders have been in Sambalpur to ward off any threat to religious harmony.

“Provisions of section 144 CrPC is hereby imposed prohibiting carrying / display of arms during the religious and other processions in Sambalpur in order to preserve public safety, public peace and for maintenance of public order”, an order issued by Sambalpur District Magistrate.

Carrying of arms during religious processions in the town had witnessed communal tension thereby jeopardising law and order situation in certain areas in the past. Taking serious account of such situation, the district administration in various peace committee meetings had also advocated not to carry arms during religious and other processions.

However, in spite of such decision, the procession led by some organisation were deliberately trying to disturb the peace and tranquility of the town defying the order.

“It has been made to appear to me that such religious processions are likely to lead to communal dis-harmony in Sambalpur town in future if any organisation succeed in carrying/display of arms during procession,” the order said.

Hanuman Jayanti, scheduled to be observed on April 14, is celebrated in a big way in this region.

Two places for IIM in Western Odisha, State Govt.

With the increasing demand to set up IIM in Western Odisha, the State Govt. recommended two places in sambalpur to the Center
for setting up the permanent campus of the proposed educational institution based on a report of Sambalpur Collector.

The two sites are in Dhankouda and Jujumura blocks of the district. Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik had written to the Centre on March 2 for setting up IIM at Sambalpur in response to Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani’s letter seeking opinion of the State Government for establishment of the institute in Western Odisha.

In the letter, the Chief Minister had said if the Centre is willing to relax guidelines for site selection, the State Government would strongly recommend Sambalpur as the location of the IIM.

Earlier, the HRD Ministry, as per its guideline, had asked the State Government to identify locations for the IIM close to an airport. The State Government had restricted its choice to places in  and around Bhubaneswar while making recommendations.

The State Government had recommended two places on the outskirts of Bhubaneswar for establishment of the IIM. The site selection committee of the HRD Ministry had also visited the two sites and recommended its findings.  It remains to be seen whether the Centre relaxes its guidelines for setting up the premier educational institution in view of the fresh recommendation made by the State Government.
