#BJD MP and MLA gave Rs.200 to jurors for favourable coverage

BJD MP Pinaki Mishra and MLA Maheswar Mohanty gave press kits with Rs.200 cash for a press conference in Puri. After finding the money inside the press kits, many enraged media persons placed the currency notes on the dais and left the press conference midway.They also filed a police complaint at the sea beach police station. However, Mishra feigned ignorance about how the money got into the press kits and termed it a "most unfortunate" incident.

The Congress and the BJP lashed out at the BJD for attempting to bribe journalists.
