Bhubaneswar: Odisha government has ordered for an enquiry into the alleged misbehaviour of Baliapal Block Development Officer (BDO) towards migrant Odia workers, informed Panchayati Raj and Drinking Water Minister Pratap Jena on Thursday.

Speaking to reporters here, the Minister said that a report in this regard has been already sought from Balasore Collector.

Stating that the government is aware of the incident, Jena said that action will be taken against the erring officer after the report is available from the collector.

Maintaining that such behaviour was totally inappropriate, he said that it should be considered as a stray case.

It may be pointed out here that Baliapal BDO Chabbirani Sahoo had allegedly misbehaved with migrant Odia workers when they had asked for water. 

A video of the incident had gone viral on social media leading to an outcry among the public in general.

Meanahile, another such case has come to the light. The Chendipada BDO is seen in a video misbehaving with women migrants.
