Bhubaneswar: Congress MLA Krushna Chandra Sagaria from Koraput constituency in Odisha on Saturday leveled serious allegation against senior party leader and Jeypore MLA Tara Prasad Bahinipati and threatened to quit the party.

Sagaria alleged that Bahinipati, who is also the Chief whip of the state Congress, has made casteist remarks against him.

“Jeypore MLA Tara Prasad Bahinipati is making casteist remarks against me and even hatching a conspiracy against me ever since I changed my religion – from Hinduism to Buddhism. I have informed the party high commands and Odisha Pradesh Congress Committee President in this regard after Bahinipati crossed the limit,” said the lawmaker while speaking to the newsmen.

“If the party high commands do not take any action in this regard, I will step down from the MLA post and quit the party,” Sagaria threatened.
