Addressing a press meet, Secretary of the association Anand Routray said Manoj has been arrested on purpose.
“The State Government is targeting only private hospital which is very unfortunate. The state government should immediately repeal the case registered against Manoj or we will take to streets if our demands are not met,” Routray said.
