Cong MLA watches porn in Odisha Assembly

The Odisha unit of the Congress had to face utter embarrassment on Monday after one of its MLAs was found watching adult clippings on his smart phone during the Question Hour in the Assembly.

The matter came to light after a local TV news channel showed the episode in its evening bulletin. The development has already triggered a row in the state’s political circles with the ruling Biju Janata Dal (BJD) demanding action against Naba Das, a two time Congress MLA from Jharsuguda constituency.

“This is a shameful incident. Everybody should condemn it. We have already drawn the attention of the Speaker to the matter and demanded exemplary action against the Congress MLA,” said senior BJD legislator and the regional outfit’s women wing president, Pramilla Mallick.

The state unit of the BJP has also demanded action against Das who is known in the state’s political circle as a firebrand leader.

An utterly embarrassed Congress’s state unit has demanded a thorough probe into the incident. “This is definitely an unfortunate development. It should be probed thoroughly and action should be taken against the MLA if he is found guilty,” said PCC general secretary Sulochana Das.

Reacting to the development, Das admitted that he was going through the adult clippings in his smart phone but it was unintentional. “When I was searching my personal webpage, by mistake I pressed the YouTube button. It was unintentional. There should be a probe into the entire episode. There is a conspiracy going on against me,” the senior MLA told reporters.

However, he did not explain why he was using his mobile phone inside the Assembly when the session was underway. Members of the Odisha Assembly are not allowed to use mobile phone inside the House when the session is on.
