Hurl eggs, I'll make omelet: Babul

Press Trust of India  |  Bhubaneswar 

Union minister Babul Supriyo today ridiculed the ruling BJD and the opposition in and said he would make omelet if eggs were hurled at him.

"There is not an iota of fear in me. I heard some people hurled eggs. I am a non-vegetarian. If BJD and workers hurl eggs at me, I'll make omelet with it and eat that," the minister of state for heavy industries told reporters when asked whether he was afraid of facing egg attack in the state.

Several BJD workers yesterday had hurled eggs at the vehicle of Union Minister of Tribal Affairs Jual Oram at Aul Bazaar in Kendrapara district while activists showed black flags at him.

While BJD supporters opposed the visiting minister over Mahanadi water dispute, workers targeted him over the killings of six farmers in police firing in Mandsaur and also on the Mahanadi issue.

"I have come from where political situation is worse than Odisha, so none can scare me here" he said and accused both the BJD and the of looting the state.

"The BJD and are creating hindrances for the welfare schemes of the Centre to reach the people," he alleged.
