The incident happened on the same day of Prime Minister Modi’s visit to Odisha when Union Minister of Tribal Affairs Jual Oram allegedly slapped his PA Sidharth Mohapatra and what is surprising is that there’s no debate on television and very less media has covered the incident and telecasted it, specifically speaking ‘We Are Talking About The National Media!’
In the presence of hundred of people and all the eyewitnesses which includes the journalists present at the spot who stated that “Slap was hard enough to jolt Mohapatra” but what is surprising is none of the national media has covered the incident even after their presence at the spot and everything was captured on camera.
In a statement given to ommcomnews, Jual Oram stated that “Mr Mohapatra is a junior staff of mine. He did something wrong and I just pushed him. I didn’t slap him.” But as the pictures are stating a different story, BJP termed the incident as personal matter.
No formal complaint has been lodged so far! But there are several questions people are asking on social media and internet!
1) How can it be a personal matter and why this should not be treated as workplace harassment?
2)If the same incident would have happened where a general public representative would have slapped a SC or ST employee, then what would have the reaction of media?
3)Why national media choosed to be silent?
4)Why our own media took long hours to publish the news?
5)Why BJP is running away from incident and not taking action against it’s leader?
6)What has Jual Oram achieved as a minister in central govt.?
7)Is a formal complaint against somebody should be the only criteria to take action even if there are hundred of eye witnesses?
