Bolangir: Trouble seems to mounting for Patnagarh MLA Saroj Meher, who was caught on camera while punishing a PWD Junior Engineer (JE) in public for an alleged low quality work executed in Belpada section of Balangir district.

The viral video shows the legislator making Patnagarh PWD Junior Engineer Jaswant Sabar do 100 times sit-ups within the deadline of five minutes in public glare at Gambhari village. Even Executive Engineer of Kantabanji, Lokanath Mishra, had allegedly slapped Sabar in full public view.

Members of Odisha Diploma Engineers Service Association (ODESA) met the Balangir Collector Arindam Dakua on Sunday and submitted a memorandum demanding a secure work environment for them and stringent action against Meher and Mishra. They have decided to observe a pen down agitation and further resort to cease-work agitation if their demands are not met.

After meeting them, Collector Dakua said the allegations against the MLA and Executive Engineer have been found as factually correct. He will apprise the State Government about it and further action will be taken accordingly.
