Bhubaneswar: As was expected, senior leader Bijoy Mohapatra was today expelled from Kendrapara District BJP Committee over indiscipline and anti-party activities. Axe fell on him following a scuffle which erupted between his supporters and former MLA Utkal Keshari Parida’s followers during party’s ‘Mishran Parva’ at Singitia Sindhibata in Kendrapara on Thursday.
Informing on the development, Kendrapara district BJP President Duryodhan Sahoo said Mohapatra has been removed as the special invitee member of the working committee as a part of the action.
Notably, the ‘Mishran Parva’ in Kendrapara turned into a virtual battleground on Thursday in which Mohapatra’s supporters attacked the other group of the party with sticks and ransacked the venue completely alleging that the district committee had not invited him to the event. The violence was brought to control only after Patkura Police reached the spot and intervened.
