Koraput: Congress MLA Krushna Chandra Sagaria from Koraput constituency in Odisha on Sunday questioned the appointment of senior Congress MLA Tara Prasad Bahinipati’s wife Minakshi as Koraput Congress district President.
Sagaria claimed that Minakshi neither ever worked for the party nor attended any party meeting and therefore her appointment will not serve any purpose for the party.
On the other hand, taking a dig at the first-time Koraput MLA, Minakshi said, “Who is Krushna Chandra Sagaria to question my appointment as President of Koraput District Congress Committee? If I were not capable enough then why would the party high command gave me the assignment? He doesn’t know anything and won the election only because of the love and affection which the people have for the Congress party.”

Notably, AICC President Rahul Gandhi on Saturday appointed new President and Working President of all the District Congress Committees in Odisha including Minakshi.
Sagaria had also yesterday leveled serious allegation against Bahinipati and threatened to quit the party. He had alleged that Bahinipati had made casteist remarks against him and even had threatened to step down from the MLA post and quit the party if the party high commands do not take any action over the issue.
