A legislator today had an altercation with security personnel over entry at the state secretariat here

legislator from Kotpad, Chandrasekhar Majhi was embroiled in a controversy after he attempted to the enter the state secretariat through gate number one in a scooter.

The security personnel alleged that Majhi forcibly tried to enter the state secretariat through gate number one on a scooter flouting the security norms laid down for entry into the premises.

As per the security norms, pedestrians and two wheeler riders are not allowed to enter the secretariat through gate number one during day time. There are other gates earmarked for the two wheelers, a security man said.

Majhi, however, said that he was not aware of the rules.

"I felt insulted when intercepted by security personnel. I didn't misbehave with them, it was just a verbal tiff," said the legislator.
