Bhubaneswar: The Odisha unit of National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) on Monday demanded the arrest of Itish Pradhan hours after his open threat to hurl eggs on Odisha Pradesh Congress Committee (OPCC) president Niranjan Patnaik.

In a press meet at the Congress Bhawan here, All-India Congress Committee (AICC) member Manasha Tripathy along with NSUI’s state coordination committee members condemned the behaviour of Pradhan terming it as unconstitutional.
