Bhubaneswar: BJP National Spokesperson and Puri MP candidate Sambit Patra has apologized after being insulted by calling Lord Shri Jagannath a devotee of Modi. Sambit said, it came out of my mouth wrongly. That’s why I am very sad. Sambit said that I will fast for 3 days to repent for this mistake.

Puri MP candidate Sambit Patra shared a video on social media at around 1:00 pm. Sambit said in the video, “I am very sorry for the wrong thing I said about Mahaprabhu Shri Jagannath.” For this I am bowing down at the feet of Mahaprabhu Shri Jagannath and asking for forgiveness. I will fast for the next 3 days to atone for my mistake.

It is worth noting that during Modi’s road show in Puri yesterday morning, lakhs of people from different parts of Puri Lok Sabha constituency came to have a darshan of Modi’s devotee Mahaprabhu Jagannath to join the Prime Minister’s road show. Sambit Pot has been criticized all around for this. Even Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik, State Congress and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal also criticized and said that Sambit’s comments were reprehensible.
