Bhubaneswar: Lok Sabha Member and actor Anubhav Mohanty who is mired in a controversy over allegedly misbehaving a journalist at Kendarapada, today termed the incident as unfortunate. A Facebook video featuring the actor showed Mohanty saying that he was disturbed with the incident. "I never intended this and am unhappy about the incident," he said.
He added that former MP Baijayant Panda is running a campaign against him to malign his image. "After he lost from me from Kendrapada, the TV channel run by his family, OTV is continually assailing my character, humiliating and annoying me," Mohanty added. In the same video, he requested Panda not to disturb him while he serves the constituency.
OTV has released a statement on Mohanty allegations. The channel stated that it runs all news items professionally without any bias, fear or favour.
