BJP’s national vice-president Baijayant ‘Jay’ Panda on Sunday landed himself in a controversy on the internet by allegedly comparing the

law

and order situation in Odisha with that of

Pakistan

.
The ruling Biju

Janata Dal

(BJD) came down heavily on Panda for his remark.
“Shameful how Maharashtra & Odisha police simply “pick up” & assault journalists & do custodial interrogation, without following the basic process of law, like in Pakistan. This is real fascism. Please speak up for Ramesh Rath of @otvnews & @pradip103 of @republic,” tweeted Panda.
Panda’s tweet came after senior journalist was picked up by the police in Bhubaneswar on Thursday in connection with a viral fake sex video of a female BJD MP.
