Bhubaneswar: The working chairman of the Odisha Pradesh Congress Committee (OPCC), Pradeep Majhi, claimed on Monday that the innocence of Keonjhar MP Chandrani Murmu was misused on various occasions.
The congressman said this in response to police action in a fake viral video allegedly linking to the Keonjhar MP.
âThe innocence of MP Chandrani Murmu is being misused and ‘Adivasi Samaj’ will not tolerate it,â said Majhi.
The innocence of deputy Chandrani Murmu is being abused. ‘Adivasi Samaj’ will not tolerate it & gherao Naveen Niwas in the coming days. Instead of targeting people, the police should act within the law and find the creator of the fake video: Pradeep Majhi, sitting chairman of #OPCC

Claiming that the Odisha Adivasi Samaj (tribal community) felt absolutely insecure, Majhi said, âEarlier, a tribal woman was brutally murdered after being gang-raped in Malkangiri district. She has yet to get justice. Now, an MP from Odisha is calling for justice, but Odisha’s government is completely silent on the issue, âhe said.
Majhi also expressed disappointment at the aggressive police action on the media and said the police should act within the law.
He said police needed to find out who created the edited video and on which computer it was created and immediately arrest the accused. He threatened to launch a massive demonstration if action was not taken sooner rather than later.
“Unless strict action is initiated in the matter, all Adivasi Samaj of Odisha will meet and gherao Naveen Niwas in the coming days,” he said.
He further stated that the Odisha government should step in and stop targeting multiple people in this case.
