KalingaTV News Network

Bhubaneswar: In a big jolt to the state unit of BJP, many of its grass root leaders including a Block Chairman from Rayagda district joined Congress party here on Wednesday.

As many as 7 Panchayat Samiti members, eight Sarapanchs and Muniguda Block Chairman Sridhrara Karada who were in the saffron party fold held the hands of Congress in the presence of Odisha PCC President Prasad Harichandan at the Congress Bhavan in the State capital.

Harichandan welcomed all of them by garlanding and feeding them sweets at party office here. Many senior leaders also attended the joining programme.

On the other hand, Odisha BJP Vice-President Samir Mohanty alleged that there is a nexus between BJD and Congress. “The joining of the elected representatives will not have any impact on the party as a Super Cyclone has come for BJD. As its President Naveen Patnaik is feeling insecure on BJP’s rising popularity in Odisha, PCC President Prasad Harichandan has geared up to support him,” reacted Mohanty.
