If they throw eggs at me, I’ll make omelette’: Union Minister Babul Supriyo


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

“There is not an iota of fear in me. I heard a few people hurled eggs. I am a non-vegetarian. If BJD and Congress workers throws 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.

A few BJD workers yesterday had hurled eggs at the vehicle of Union Minister of Tribal Affairs Jual Oram at Aul Bazaar in Kendrapara area while Congress activists demonstrated black flags at him.

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

“I have come from West Bengal where political situation is worse than Odisha, so none can panic me here” he said and blamed both the BJD and the Congress of looting the state.

“The BJD and Congress are creating hindrances for the welfare plans of the Center to reach the people,” he affirmed.
