Gunupur MLA Trinath Gomango quits BJD
Rayagada: In yet another blow to the ruling Biju Janata Dal (BJD) in Odisha, Gunupur MLA Trinath Gomango today resigned from the primary membership of the party alleging the State Government’s callousness towards tribal people.
Trinath, who submitted his resignation letter to Odisha CM and BJD supremo Naveen Patnaik today, expressed his deep discontentment over his party’s decision to not invite him to a ‘Mishran Parva’ held in Gunupur recently. The MLA also alleged that he was being neglected and tortured in the hands of a handful of cunning party leaders in his constituency.
Trinath also alleged CM Naveen Patnaik and his government to be apathetic towards tribal people of Gunupur and dubbed them to be insensitive towards their rights.
“Despite taking the matter repeatedly to your and Pandian Sir’s notice, justice was not made to me and the people of Gunupur, for which I decided to quit the party,” mentioned the MLA in his letter.
Notably, Gomango had joined BJD in 2009. He had been elected from Gunupur on the party ticket in 2014 Assembly elections by defeating Purusattam Gomango of Congress by a slim 7,386 votes.
