Bhubaneswar: The Biju Janata Dal has come down heavily on the Bharatiya Janata Party for politicizing sensitive human tragedies and accidents for political gains. BJD Spokesperson Dr Sasmit Patra issued a statement “an unfortunate and preventable incident occurred yesterday night at the airport where we learn one person has died and several injured. Our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased. We demand that the deceased’s family is adequately compensated and proper treatment is given to the injured free of cost.”
